We’re back! This week we explore the origin of chocolate, the history of chocolate in Korea, and then we try Pocket Lattes.
We have been so excited to try Pocket Latte, a bar made from cocoa butter and coffee that contains as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. It is such a fun and innovative product but it has literally taken us almost a year to get it on the schedule. Chris Chun/Young and his mother, Young Kwon started Pocket Latte in 2018 and through hard work and determination have grown like crazy since.
Before we get to the story of Pocket Latte, we first discuss the history of chocolate from its roots as a drink revered by the Mayan and Aztec civilizations to its trip to Europe where chocolate mania took off and gave us the tasty treats we enjoy today.
Then we learn about chocolate’s relatively recent history in Korea and how it is enjoyed and celebrated today.
After all this talking, we FINALLY get to try all four Pocket Latte flavors. Listen to find out if these adorably packaged bars were worth the wait!
