Reviews

Praise for "Bitter Chocolate"

""Bitter Chocolate" is less a book about chocolate than it is a study of racism, imperialism and oppression as told through the lens of a single commodity."
--"The Globe and Mail"

"An astounding eye-opener that takes no prisoners in its account of an industry built on an image of sweetness and innocence, but which hides a dark and often cruel reality. You'll never look at chocolate the same way again."
--"Quill and Quire" (starred review)

"We know chocolate makers have their secrets--like how they get that caramel in there. That one, though, is pretty tame compared with the stuff unearthed in . . .Carol Off's new expose, "Bitter Chocolate".
--"Toronto Star"

In the style of Mark Kurlansky's "Salt", "Bitter Chocolate" unravels chocolate's glittery packaging and uncovers an industry tainted by war and genocide."
--"Ottawa XPress"

"[Off] makes her case so strongly and with such nuanced flavour that the book becomes as hard to put down as a bar of Toblerone."
--"Shared Vision"
