We all love chocolate. Milk chocolate is one of the best-selling products in the world. Swiss chocolate is among the best known, followed by Belgian chocolate.

Most of the chocolate retail sales occur on the European continent. Nearly half of the sales happen in Europe, while just 20% of world’s chocolate consumption accounts in the United States.

And according to statistics, women prefer to eat chocolate more than man. The average British, Swiss, and German citizen consume around 24 pounds of chocolate a year. That means they consume as much chocolate as they consume seafood. The average American consumes two times less chocolate.

And chocolate is the most popular gift for Valentine’s day. According to statistics, on an average Valentine’s day, more than $400 million of chocolate is purchased around the world. That is 5% of total sales by the industry through the year.

How is this perfect delight made? This documentary explains the production process from scratch, to the chocolate delight we put in our mouths.
