Field Museum Brings Back Chocolate Exhibit

By Samantha Abernethy in Food on Oct 21, 2011 10:00PM

Hey, Sweet Tooth, clear your schedule! The Field Museum is bringing back its third most popular exhibit ever: "Chocolate Around the World." The exhibit has information on growing, making and eating chocolate, as well as information on the role chocolate plays in our history. It was last here in 2002, and after this stop the traveling exhibit will embark on an international tour. The Field Museum writes:

Discover the unique cacao tree whose seeds started it all, unearth the origins of chocolate consumption, and discover how chocolate was transformed from a bitter drink of kings into the chocolate we love today.
The Sun-Times says little has changed since the last time the exhibit was here, but there are some updates on current child labor issues on African cacao farms.

The Field Museum, 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last admission for Chocolate Around the World is at 3:30pm.
