chocoholic II: chocolate exhibition Lucern Museum of History, Switzerland, Apr – Aug 2009
I have recently been to a chocolate exhibition in Lucern Museum of History. The exhibition will last until August.
To all chocolate lovers, I hope you will enjoy these photos I have selected for you : )
So let’s begin the chocolate tour:
- Old fashioned pots for Hot Chocolate
Here you are seeing a chunk of 200 kg chocolate blocks with some interesting facts:
- a cacao tree produces cacao seeds can produce about 3kg of chocolate
- In Switzerland, on average 12.4 kg of chocolate is consumed per head. 75% of people likes milk chocolate, 20% dark chocolate and 5% white chocolate
- there is about 500-600 kcal per 100g of chocolate which accounts about one-quarter of the daily calorie requirements which is equivalent to 1.2-1.5 litre of coca-cola or 5-6 bananas or 200-250 white bread
That’s why it’s nicer to share your chocolate with your loved ones.
