COCOBOD, the government monopsony that controls cocoa in Ghana, has produced a movie titled Mmofra - Yen Daakye (Children - Our Future) to reinforce the campaign against worst forms of child labor in the cocoa fields, its dangers & consequences (note the progress, however, that only a fringe few still use the phrase 'child slave labor'). Captioned with English subtitles, it features popular Ghanaian actors & actresses.

Getting to be that time to make a similar movie on the fate of the cocoa itself.

The degradation of Ghanaian cocoa continues apace, buckling under the onslaught of "superior" hybrids hatched for disease-resistance, then fashioned with spry names like 'Mercedes superseed'.

Impotent by historical standards. Virtually no core chocolate whimper at all, let alone the proud bang that this country is known for.

Thanks breeders, scientists, candy giants. Y'all done wowfucked-up good here.

This isn't Ghana, this is a gondola... sliding distantly away from what used to be a forest chocolate whose trees carved into bars struck the senses as a sawhorse built from massive 2-by-4s. The candy version of The Killing Fields.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, raw sugar, cocoa butter, salt
