Chocolate Has a New Origin Story

New archaeological evidence suggests humans were cultivating and consuming cacao – the crop from which chocolate is produced – as long as 5,300 years ago, which is 1,500 years earlier than previously thought. What’s more, cacao was initially domesticated in the equatorial regions of South America, and not Central America. Read More >>

There’s a Sushi You Can Have for Pudding Now

Today's weird foodstuff news is brought to you in association with Yo! Sushi, which has decided that what it really needs to appeal to people beyond its usual customer demographic is things that won't be immediately dismissed as containing raw fish. Like, for example, a chocolate type of sushi, that has definitely not got any fish in it whatsoever, and isn't even produced in a factory that also processes fish. It is only chocolate. That'll get them in from the pubs and Burger Kings. Read More >>

Poundland’s Homegrown Toblerone Replacement, Twin Peaks, is Coming Back Next Friday

Last year Poundland finally launched Twin Peaks, a chocolate bar designed to be a cheaper alternative to the Toblerone. It's a bar that has a contentious history, because Toblerone-makers Mondelez sued Poundland claiming the chocolate was a breach of copyright.

At least two of them are made with Oreos and another two have nuts in, plus all those other amalgamations that include different Cadbury chocolate bars.

White £2k Creme Egg Remains Lost in Distribution Chain

Sorry to go mentioning easter in early May when you're trying to forget chocolate exists in order to fit in your video game t-shirts again, but it's to do with that white Creme Egg promotion.
