Isam and the chocolate factory: Syrian refugees relaunch family business in Canada - The Guardian

The Hadhads were left with nothing after rockets rained down on their home and destroyed the factory that housed the family chocolate-making business. Now, resettled in a new home on Canada ’s east coast – where they had arrived some five months earlier as refugees – they felt they could do something to help. Weeks after settling in Antigonish, a small town of 10,000 people in Nova Scotia, they had relaunched the family business, improvising in their small kitchen to recreate some of the chocolates they had once exported across the Middle East. “Making chocolate was really getting us some revenue, so we said, why don’t we help the Canadians on the other side of the country.

The First “Chocolate Chip” Was a Molasses Candy - Smithsonian

The origins of the modern chocolate chip lie with Ruth Wakefield, the woman who created the Toll House cookie in the 1930s. But the name “chocolate chip” is older than that, writes Kate Erbland for Mental Floss. The original “Chocolate Chips” were small cookies that probably bore a resemblance to the original kind of “chips,” according to Merriam-Webster : chips of wood. Then in 1892, Erbland writes, “the ‘chip’ title was first applied to candy, as a Kaufmanns candy ad from the time boasted of their supply of ‘chocolate chips. But the chocolate chips they were making weren’t the modern candy: a court case in 1897 over the trademark for “Trowbridge Chocolate Chips” said the candies bearing that name were “thin oblong pieces of molasses coated in chocolate,” she writes.

Geeks are using science to make the best chocolate ever

Rob Anderson is a geek. So he makes chocolate for other geeks, or, more accurately, "people who really like chocolate and geek out about it."What does he mean by that? If you change one step of the chocolate-making process, you change the taste of the resulting chocolate entirely. And Anderson wants to show you exactly what that means. Fresco Chocolate, his company, roasts beans four different ways and conches (aka aerates and stirs) chocolate four different ways to create totally unique bars...

ANN ARBOR - Zingerman's Candy Manufactory opened this fall just in time for Halloween, and as the holidays roll around, business is booming.

It may slow down the process, but owner Charlie Frank says eating fresh candy is a whole new experience and delivers a lasting impression. He sources his ingredients with high standards, which helps add to the flavor....

The Chocolate Factory Gets Helping Hand from Stratasys 3D Printing

We’re filled to brimming with articles about the ways in which 3D printing has impacted medical, automotive, and military sectors, and there have been a number of discussions around the impact that the technology will have in fashion, foods, and furnishings. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find an area in which 3D printing hasn’t made some impact. One of my favorite applications is 3D printed chocolate.
