Pods in Paradise, 
a Choose Your Own Adventure Story! (kind of)

You are presented with a bushel of fiery bright pods. You realize that these are, in fact, cacao pods, the fruit from which chocolate is made! But, how does it get from these odd fruits to that "food of the gods?"

You crack one open with a rubber mallet to investigate. There seems to be a column of little beans surrounded by pulp.

Pulling each of the pulpy beans from the central stalk carefully, you soon have a tub filled with the magical mysteries.  

But, what to do now????? 

Should you try to plant them, so that you will have more pods in the future or should you try to make chocolate from them? Click through to continue your adventure!
