Ha! I knew this would be right up my alley! This is my best result so far on one of your quizzes. 🙂
Well done Carol! I thought you would like this one!
I consider myself quite an expert on chocolate – at least the eating part anyway. 🙂
That’s the most important bit Carol!
When was Belgian chocolate regulated by law? Your quiz answer mentions 1884; it should be 1894.
Jacques (another brand of chocolate)
Although Wikipedia mentions 1894 I found many more references that date it back to 1884 Jacques.
I had a much more reliable source: A paper from the KUL Faculty of Economics And Business.
See section: Defining and protecting “Belgian chocolate”
Attempts to define Belgian chocolate are almost as old as the industry itself. As early as 1894, a Belgian royal decree limited the circulation of chocolate imitations that replaced cocoa with poor quality fats. Article 2 of this decree established that it was “illegal to sell, have in possession or expose for sale, or to transmit any product whatever, under the designation ‘chocolate’, that is not manufactured exclusively from shelled cocoa, and that in a minimum proportion of 35%, and ordinary sugar, with or without admixture of spices” (for more details see Meloni and Swinnen, 2015).
Arrêté royal du 18 novembre 1894 relatif au commerce du cacao et du chocolat.
And ‘Revue Belge de la Police Administrative & Judiciaire 1895. See page 13.
Thanks Jacques, I will change it.
Wonderful quiz. May I now have a piece of Belgian chocolate? It is good and I like much better than Belgian (or any other) beer.
If you were closer Pat I’d send you some
Thanks. I’m sure I can buy it cheaper here than you could mail it. 😉
I did horribly on the quiz, but nonetheless enjoyed it thoroughly. Quite early in the day, and already I’ve learned a lot, including the existence of artificial saliva!
Yes, that will get the conversation flowing at a dinner party!
9/12. I had the sales question, the per capita question and the output question wrong. I’m happy.
Yes, those were very much in the guess and hope for the best category. You did well to get all the others correct.
I know nothing about Belgian chocolate except that it’s my very special treat at Thanksgiving and Christmas 🙂
I eat a square of Belgian chocolate every day! <3
I hope you know a little bit more about what you are eating Eliza!
Definitely my kind of quiz. Now, please.excuse me while I savour my chocolate alone.:)
Enjoy it as much as I enjoy your comments here Henry.
