pennsylvania_philadelphia_betsy-rossWho knew? Mars Chocolate North America has a program to fund research into chocolate history.

This year, Chocolate History Research and Investigative Studies Grants were awarded to three living history sites innovating in the areas of chocolate history programming.

The 2014 winners:
Betsy Ross House/Historic Philadelphia, Inc.: 18th-century kitchen exhibit reinterpretation and demonstration project
Genesee Country Museum: Expansion of current chocolate history program to include new presentations to enhance the visitor experience year-round
Old Salem Museum and Gardens: Further study in a research project focused on how a documented 18th-century Salem resident purchased and sold chocolate in the community

Winners were acknowledged November 19, 2014, at the banquet dinner of the Colonial Chocolate Society in Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The Colonial Chocolate Society is a group that meets annually to further the study of chocolate’s history and legacy in the Americas.
