Chocolate Wars : The 150-year Rivalry Between the World's Greatest Chocolate Makers

( 10 )

Overview

With a cast of characters that wouldn’t be out of place in a Victorian novel, Chocolate Wars tells the story of the great chocolatier dynasties, through the prism of the Cadburys. Chocolate was consumed unrefined and unprocessed as a rather bitter, fatty drink for the wealthy elite until the late 19th century, when the Swiss discovered a way to blend it with milk and unleashed a product that would conquer every market in the world.

Overview

With a cast of characters that wouldn’t be out of place in a Victorian novel, Chocolate Wars tells the story of the great chocolatier dynasties, through the prism of the Cadburys. Chocolate was consumed unrefined and unprocessed as a rather bitter, fatty drink for the wealthy elite until the late 19th century, when the Swiss discovered a way to blend it with milk and unleashed a product that would conquer every market in the world.

Thereafter, one of the great global business rivalries unfolded as each chocolate maker attempted to dominate its domestic market and innovate new recipes for chocolate that would set it apart from its rivals. The contest was full of dramatic contradictions: The Cadburys were austere Quakers who found themselves making millions from an indulgent product; Kitty Hershey could hardly have been more flamboyant yet her husband was moved by the Cadburys tradition of philanthropy. Each was a product of their unique time and place yet they shared one thing: they want to make the best chocolate in the world.

    A delicious history

    It was interesting to read about the history of Cadbury and their rivals. Reading how it was done way back when makes you appreciate what they went through and makes the chocolate all the more enjoyable now.

    An Interesting Read

    Especially enjoyed the history behind our favorite delicacy, chocolate. I never knew the Quaker religion played such an important role in chocolate. You can learn much by reading this book. I was amazed out how the Cadbury's, et al never lived for personal wealth and their employees came first. The last chapter was not as enlightening to me. I really did not care about the merger, but I was able to see how it changed the role of the English chocolatiers (sic).
    If you like history and you like food you will like this book.
