The True History of Chocolate by Sophie D. Coe and Michael D. Coe. Hardcover book published by Thames and Hudson 1996.
Recently I wrote about the popularity of Stalinism as apposed to the popularity of Chocolate, having had a book on the history of each subject for sale at the time. The eBay auctions have now finished and I have a final result.
Sadly, Chocolate is NOT more popular than Stalinism… but I’m happy to report that Stalinism is NOT more popular than Chocolate. In the end it was a nil nil draw. Both auctions were a little lacklustre…. well… ok… VERY lacklustre (neither book sold)… with absolutely no interest at all. So what does this mean? I have no idea, other than the fact that Chocolate and Stalinism have unwanted histories. Sad but true.
