Stumble Into Indonesia's Unseen Places

Who doesn’t like chocolate? I do. But it’s not until July 2010 that I saw the fruit from which it is made, in a town called Tentena, in Central Sulawesi. A nice local man picked the fruit from a tree that was grown in a vast area of cacao trees because I wanted to know how the fruit tasted. Well, to sum it up, I’d rather have the ready product in bars, preferably mixed with peanuts or raisins.
However, it’s interesting to know that Indonesia is among the countries that produce most cacao in the world, but most of the people don’t have the chocolate-eating habit, so most of the cacao beans are processed in other countries.
