Great day out at Charley’s Chocolate. We learnt a lot about growing cocoa & chocolate production. Who would have thought that cocoa has only been grown in Australia for the last 15 years (70% of world production is grown in Western Africa). It is only grown in a small area between Mossman & Tully due to the climatic conditions required by the cocoa tree. It is a fruit so therefore chocolate (over 70% cocoa) is healthy & is allegedly  an aphrodisiac. Australia is the 7th highest consumer of chocolate in the world (Switzerland being the highest). It also tastes pretty good.
