"The Chocolate Case" by Benthe Forrer

Some sobering food for thought the next time you crack open a chocolate bar: The majority of chocolate producers are in some way supported by child slavery utilized on cocoa plantations. Upon discovering this over a decade ago, three Dutch journalists took the first steps on a journey that led them into the chocolate business, attempting to prove that there can be such a thing as ethically made chocolate bars. Eye-opening, funny, and yes, a little sweet, The Chocolate Case showcases unrelenting journalism being used as a force for good.
