Anyone who’s had chocolate made in Switzerland or Germany will tell you that most American chocolate is cheap nasty stuff. It may get cheaper and nastier.
They’re considering allowing substitution of vegetable oil ($0.70/lb.) for cocoa butter ($2.30/lb.), and whey protein for dry whole milk.
I don’t really care so much about the chocolate, I don’t eat much anyway. I think it’s interesting though, that there are people working to make a famously low quality product lower in quality. However, if you READ THE ARTICLE, you’ll note there are some people in strong opposition to this. You can be too!
