The story centers around an average and poor boy named Charlie Bucket, who lives in extreme poverty with his extended family, and his adventures inside the chocolate factory of Willy Wonka. One day Willy Wonka decided to allow five children to visit the factory. Each child will win a lifetime supply of chocolate after the factory tour. The children have to find one of the five golden tickets hidden inside the wrapping paper of random Wonka bars. Augustus Gloop (a boy who eats constantly), Veruca Salt (a girl who is spoiled), Violet Beauregarde (a girl who chews gum all day), Mike Teavee (a boy who is addicted to television), and Charlie Bucket win tickets and visit the factory.
The factory is full of strange and fantastical rooms, including a chocolate-mixing room that looks like a huge garden, where everything is made of candy and there is a chocolate lake in the middle. The factory is staffed by small, pygmy-like men called Oompa-Loompas.
"Accidents" happen while on the guided tour. Augustus falls in the chocolate lake. Violet, ignoring Wonka's advice, tries some of his three-course-dinner gum and swells up like a blueberry upon reaching the blueberry pie dessert. While In the nut-sorting room Veruca attempts to steal one squirrel herself – the squirrels deem her a 'bad nut' and throw her down the garbage chute. Mike tries to use the Television Chocolate machine –and ends up shrunken to about 6 inches high. Charlie, being the only child left and the one Wonka likes the most, wins the prize: he will one day take over the factory from Wonka, Wonka wanting to pass his factory on to someone else but wanting to choose a child so that he won't have to deal with an adult trying to do things his way rather than learn from Wonka's experience. Wonka, Charlie and Grandpa Joe board the Great Glass Elevator, which bursts through the roof. each child and their parents are…...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Summary

..."Charlie & The Chocolate Factory" is pleasant to look at, but Johnny Depp gives the most awful act of his profession as the candy maker. Wilder reinvented Willy Wonka and the dim undertones of the book were lay elsewhere in an extra effortless to get to way for all. In the original, we don't see the kids and their parents leaving the factory. We don't know if they are alive, dead, or still strapped down in the dejuicing room. That is what made the original so astonishing. Tim Burton is an excellent director -- one of the best -- but he needs to spotlight on original work instead of these remakes. If he insists on the remakes, he needs to pick something rather less frightened than the best family movie ever finished. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is about a strange candy maker Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) and Charlie. Charlie is a charitable boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory. Long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five of the fortunate children, counting Charlie, draw golden tickets from Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided expedition of the well-known candy-making facility. Dazzled by one remarkable picture following another, Charlie is drained into Wonka's unbelievable humanity in this surprising and endure story. Texture of the film’s scenery is shown the dull developed city surrounding as Wanka’s factory is excellent. The more or less...

Furthermore, the effects of the past year’s breaking news about melamine contamination in dairy products may linger in chocolate market.

It is confirmed that anti-oxidant agent in chocolate reduces the risk of heart diseases. Moreover, the fat in chocolate helps reduce the forming of plaque in the teeth.

Introduction “Harriet’s Fruit and Chocolate Company was established in 1935 in the Pacific Northwest of the United States to ship gift baskets of locally grown peaches and pears to customers in the United States (Oppenheimer, 2011)” In regards to the physical infrastructure of Harriet’s Fruit and Chocolate Company, my investigation will reveal many important aspects to aid in the planning of the network design. First, I will determine the number of buildings to be used, as well as the distance between them and what equipment they will contain such as wiring closets or computer rooms and the current network devices. Determining the distance will help in the cabling design and wiring as well as the selection of technologies and devices to meet the design goals. My investigation will further reveal any architectural or environmental constraints, such as tall trees within the path that power lines may travel, that will assist in decisions such as whether wireless technologies are feasible as well as if there are any impediments to communications or installation, to include all hazards. Infrastructure architecture consists of the hardware, software, and telecommunications equipment that...

...General info: Chocolate i/ˈtʃɒk(ə)lət/ is a processed, typically sweetened food produced from the seed of the tropical Theobroma cacao tree. Cacao has been cultivated for at least three millennia in Mexico, Central America, and Northern South America. The seeds of the cacao tree have an intense bitter taste, and must be fermented to develop the flavor. After fermentation, the beans are dried, cleaned, roasted, and the shell is removed to produce cacao nibs. The nibs are then ground to cocoa mass, pure chocolate in rough form. Because this cocoa mass usually is liquefied then molded. The liquor also may be processed into two components: cocoa solids and cocoa butter. Much of the chocolate consumed today is in the form of sweet chocolate, a combination of cocoa solids, cocoa butter or other fat, and sugar. Milk chocolate is sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk. White chocolate contains cocoa butter, sugar, and milk but no cocoa solids. At the end of the 18th century, the first form of solid chocolate was invented in Turin by Doret. This chocolate was sold in large quantities from 1826 by Pierre Paul Caffarel in Italy. In 1819, F. L. Cailler opened the first Swiss chocolate factory. In 1828, Dutchman Coenraad Johannes van Houten patented a method for extracting the fat from cocoa beans and making powdered cocoa and cocoa butter. Van Houten also developed the "so-called" Dutch process of treating chocolate with alkali to remove the bitter...

Summary of Like Water for Chocolate

...Summary Tita De La Garza, the youngest daughter in a family living in Mexico was born inside the kitchen and in a very unique way. Tita fell in love with the kitchen since Nacha, their family cook, practically raised her inside the walls of the kitchen. She grew up serving delicious foods for the family and for feasts that their family prepare. In one of the feast she met a guy named Pedro Muzquiz with one look they fell deeply in love with each other. Pedro comes to the family's ranch to ask for Tita's hand in marriage. Because Tita is the youngest daughter she is forbidden by a family tradition upheld by her tyrannical mother, Mama Elena, to marry. Pedro marries Tita's older sister, Rosaura, instead, but declares to his father that he has only married Rosaura to remain close to Tita. Rosaura and Pedro live on the family ranch, offering Pedro contact with Tita. When Tita cooks a special meal with the petals of a rose given to her by Pedro, the still-fiery force of their love (transmitted through the food) has an intense effect on Mama Elena's oldest daughter, Gertrudis, who is whipped into a lustful state and flees the ranch in the arms of a revolutionary soldier. Meanwhile, Rosaura gives birth to a son, who is delivered by Tita. Tita treats her nephew, Roberto, as if he were her own child, to the point that she is able to produce breast milk to feed him while her sister is dry. Sensing that Roberto is drawing Pedro and Tita closer together, Mama Elena arranges for...

Chocolate

...CONSUMER MARKETS – JUNE 2014 A taste of the future The trends that could transform the chocolate industry kpmg.com T he outlook for the world’s chocolate industry is brighter than it has been for eight years. Euromonitor predicts the industry will enjoy a 6% rise in revenues in 2014, delivering record global revenues of US$117bn. This robust performance is driven by a 2.1% increase in volume, reflecting growing appetite for chocolate in emerging markets. The challenge for the industry’s major players is how to make best use of this boom to profitably grow their volumes faster than the markets, achieve sustainable improvements in core operating margins and make the right investments – be they in capacity, acquisitions, the supply chain, marketing or R&D – to seize the significant opportunities ahead. The single biggest factor improving the industry’s performance is the fact that, at long last, the global economy is showing signs of sustained recovery. Growth in many major markets is accelerating. The stellar performers are India (expected to grow by 22% this year), Brazil (13%) and China (11%). The potential long-term growth in emerging economies – many of which have growing middle classes – is vast. To give just one example: the per capita consumption of chocolate in China is only a tenth of that in Switzerland. Yet, as this global tour of the chocolate industry suggests, the future is not without challenges. The immediate concern is the balance between supply of...

Chocolate

...Chocolate Industry Chocolate. It seems as if the worlds revolves around chocolate. I can guarantee that out of 100 people at least 95 have ate chocolate before. Not because it’s obviously tasty, because it can be found almost everywhere. If you go to a local Macys, a clothing store, you can find chocolate for sale next to the registers. So how did chocolate become so abundant around the world? Not only is chocolate an abundant supply but is also really cheap. So how does one create a copious amount of something and sell it for cheap? Cocoa bean grows primarily in Western Africa, Asia, and Latin America because of their tropical climates. The cocoa beans are what makes chocolate in general. 70% of the world’s cocoa is supplied by Western Africa countries such as Ghana and in the Ivory Coast. “The cocoa they grow and harvest is sold to a majority of chocolate companies, including the largest in the world.” However, as the years have gone by, news about child labor happening in this industry has hit the media multiple times. Journalists and organization try spreading the word on what’s happening with all the child labor in this industry, but it doesn’t always get the attention it should receive. This can be because of no one really wants to know where all the good stuff is coming from. Another reason, why we do not know more about this child labor news in the industry is because the industry has become really secretive and thus creating journalist to have a hard time to get...
