Chocolate is one of the world's most popular foods. Europeans in particular are passionate about cocoa - the chocolate industry is worth around £4 billion in Britain alone.
Cocoa beans have travelled a long way from their ancestral home. Originally found in the forests of Mesoamerica, the beans were brought to Europe in the 16th century. From that moment, the Western world's love affair with chocolate began. Specialist chocolate attractions now exist across the globe, from tiny artisan chocolateries to vast factory tours. The Love Home Swap team have collated the best of these destinations, from downtown New York to the streets of Tokyo.
