Watching this video is kind of like eating an entire bar of chocolate. At first we feel a rush of sweetness but then we get all guilty and feel terrible about ourselves.
A documentary film crew traveled to Cote d’Ivoire to meet the men who are responsible for step one in the process of making delicious chocolate. These cocoa bean farmers and laborers harvest the key ingredient that goes into the sweet treat that we all know and love.
But get this - these guys have not only never tried chocolate, they’ve never even heard of it!
One worker confessed to the cameras:
"To be honest I do not know what they make of my beans. I’ve heard they’re used as flavoring in cooking, but I’ve never seen it. I do not even know if it’s true.”
His mind was blown when the host of the mini-movie pulled out a chocolate bar and broke him off a piece to try.
No surprise, he and his fellow farmers absolutely loved it!
They each try a square and are blown away by how yummy it is! Their comments are just priceless, especially their take on why white people love chocolate so much.
Said one man:
“This is why white people are so healthy!”
Quite the opposite, sir. Quite the opposite.
Press PLAY below to watch this lovable group enjoy one of the simple pleasures in life that we all take for granted.
