Description:

"The inside story of the 150-year rivalry among Cadbury, Hershey, Nestle, and Mars is a fascinating and luscious tale. Deborah Cadbury, great-great-great- granddaughter of 19th-century chocolate maker John Cadbury, tells it eloquently in Chocolate Wars, drawing the reader into her epic of family and industry with clear love for her subject."-- Philadelphia Inquirer "This is a delicious book, seductive as a tray of bonbons, a Fancy Box in every way."-- Washington Post "[ Chocolate Wars] pits idealism against capitalism, religious piety against the forces of greed and cutthroat competition. Though, like great fiction, it defies belief, it's the true story of our favorite guilty pleasure. Cadbury's book, like her namesake's famous sampler, is full of surprises and delights." -- Christian Science Monitor "The reader of Chocolate Warsfeels they are getting an insider's view."-- Financial Times "Fascinating...Read this excellent book." -- Los Angeles Times

Introduction
A Nation of Shopkeepers
Food of the Gods
Wretched Little Victims of the Workhouses
They Did Not Show Us Any Mercy
Absolutely Pure, Therefore Best
Chocolate That Could Melt in the Mouth
Machinery Creates Wealth but Destroys Men
Money Seems to Disappear Like Magic
Chocolate Empires
I'll Stake Everything on Chocolate!
Great Wealth Is Not to Be Desired
A Serpentine and Malevolent Cocoa Magnate
The Chocolate Man's Utopia
That Monstrous Trade in Flesh and Blood
God Could Have Created Us Sinless
This Company Isn't Big Enough for Both of Us
I Pray for Snickers
American Tanks Were on the Lawn
The Quaker Voice Could Still Be Heard
They'd Sell for 20p
Gone. And It Was So Easy.
