Professor of Nutrition at Ball State University (Muncie, IN), Deanna Pucciarelli used her collaboration with Ted Ed Lessons to deploy a 5-minute video that reviews the origins and evolution of chocolate.

This overview serves the professor to denounce the still very delicate state of child labor in many areas of the Ivory Coast, the world’s leading producer of our beloved bean.
