The History of Scrumptiousness

A sweet thing to do this summer is visit "Chocolate - the Exhibition" at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. The exhibition runs May 31 - September 7.

The exhibition explores the history of chocolate with video, interactive displays, and more than 200 artifacts. It's a story that reaches from the Mexican rainforests to the palaces of Europe and beyond. As chocolate arrived into America, entrepreneurs turned an extravagance of the elite to an affordable pleasure for the masses; sumptuous, decadent, and creamy.

Spend a day at the Henry Ford. It's American history at it's best and then some.
