Museum explores the history of chocolate

It’s a sweet time of year and with Valentine’s Day approaching what better time to learn about the rich history of chocolate. Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology will host a celebration of chocolate on Saturday, February 11 at its weekly Saturdays at the Museum event. Chocolate, a widely enjoyed tasty treat, has a rich history and patrons are invited to explore the many ways it can be enjoyed. The museum will provide a “Chocolate Around the World Tour” that describes what French, Italian, South American and Caribbean cultures have traditionally added to flavor chocolate. At the end of the tour, visitors can sample hot chocolate with different additives from each culture. Additional activities include a chance to make M & M watercolor valentines, watch a video presentation titled “Milton Hershey: The Chocolate King” at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and participate in Chocolate Trivia Bingo at noon and 2 p.m.
