Cocoa to chocolate

Yo! Blogging again!
Hwahahaha….This Sunday I feel relax bcoz my project for the afternoon class has been done on time. Then last week when my Mom was talking with the housekeeper, suddenly I heard from her that she planted some Cocoa bean at her small backyard of her house. Therefore, I asked her,”Bik, how does the inner part of Cocoa look like?”

She replied,”Oh, you can’t figure it out if I just decribed it to you. You must see it yourself. Maybe tomorrow I’ll bring it for you.”
“Hah? Really?! Gee, thanks!”I said. And she really did it.

She said that there is a wide variety of Cocoa fruit growth in different places. Some of them have a reddish skin, some of them will be yellow if they are ripe. And this is the first time for me to see Cocoa in front of me! Very close to me! I wonder how this Cocoa can transform into the most delicious and famous Chocolate. There must be a long process until it can become Cocoa powder and even Chocolate.

And after I cut it into two, I was quite ‘amazed’ when the seeds came out. Hoho…the milky white flesh sure looked appetizing. But after I tasted one, my face became like this:

It’s sour! Huekk….! Almost like Mangosteen…!

and when I bit it, the bitter and undescribable taste came out. That time I knew, the Chocolate factory must have used a lot of sugar to make it sweet! That’s why some people said that Chocolate is not good if we eat it a lot!

The housekeeper also said that she must dry the Cocoa beans off under the sunlight and after that she can sell them to the factory.
Huhu…Finally I’ve seen the real Cocoa and even taste the weird flavor…This makes me love Chocolate more and more!

N.B : this is the Cocoa bean after it has been cut into two pieces. :)
