+ World Chocolate Day

Challenge #1

Can you draw your own chocolate bar, come up with your own name for it?

Did you know: The English chocolate company Cadbury made the first chocolate bar in the world in 1842. Although cacao originated in Central and South America more than 4,000 years ago, now approximately 70% of the world’s cacao is grown in Africa. Cote d’lvoire is the single largest producer of cocoa, providing roughly 40% of the world’s supply.

Challenge #2

Can you draw a tree that grows chocolate treats on it (use your imagination)?

Did you know: Chocolate comes from a fruit tree; it’s made from a seed. It takes 400 cocoa beans to make one pound of chocolate. Each cacao tree produces approximately 2,500 beans. Some cacao trees are more than 200 years old, but most give marketable cocoa beans for only the first 25 years.

Challenge #3

Can you draw a bug running on a chocolate bar?

Did you know: Your chocolate probably contains bugs. On average, a chocolate bar contains around eight insect parts, but it is still deemed to be safe for consumption. According to the U.S Food and Drug Administration, "most foods have natural contaminants in them, but there are levels which the FDA deems safe. Anything more than 60 insect pieces per 100 grams of chocolate is rejected by the FDA."
