Chocolate: The Exhibition – An Event that Will Have you Craving More
It’s time for chocolate lovers everywhere to unite for what is sure to be the summer’s most sweetly savoring exhibit. For the Summer of 2011, MUZEO in downtown Anaheim will be displaying Chocolate: The Exhibition, giving audiences of Southern California the chance to learn more about the plants, products, history and culture of chocolate. Developed by the Field Museum of Chicago, this traveling exhibit has been seen by thousands of people throughout the country and will only be in California for a limited amount of time, so you’ll want to make sure you get your tickets before it’s too late.
Aging as far back as 300 BCE, there are traces of chocolate and its role in the diet, rituals and ceremonies of civilizations throughout the world. This thought provoking exhibit will take audiences into the world of this sweet treasure through the lenses of an economist, anthropologist, historian and ecologist, assuring that it appeals to all types of people. You’ll see how chocolate’s history coincides with the technology, advertising and packaging advancements of the world, giving viewers a new perspective on the events of past civilizations. Best of all, at the end of the exhibit visitors will get a piece of chocolate to fight off the cravings that come from a walkthrough of this mouth watering showcase.
With adult tickets starting at just $13, there is no reason why anyone should miss this educational and fun event. From sweet candy to delicious drinks, chocolate is now used in nearly every type of recipe or dish, having a significant role in our current Western culture. And tracing this infamous snack’s lineage might make you appreciate this tasty treat even more than you already do.
