Top 5 chocolate-loving countries

Screen Shot 2011-11-16 at 2.09.49 PM

"The top five countries in spending per capita on chocolate are European."

The U.S. isn't even close.

Burdick Chocolate out of Walpole, New Hampshire has been my favorite chocolatier since the late 20th century and I see no viable challenger on the horizon.

Full disclosure: I met Larry Burdick, grand panjandrum of Burdick Chocolate, back in the day when he was based in tiny quarters along an alley in New York City.

Times — and fortunes — change.

Because as all good statisticians know, correlation and causation are the same. The obesity rate is higher in America than these countries, yet we spend less money on chocolate. Therefore, eating lots of expensive chocolate prevents weight gain!

I'm going to go celebrate my genius with a new diet now.
