They have been growing cocoa trees their whole life...but never tasted a chocolate! In fact they've never heard of it!

The Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer and exporter of cocoa beans used in the manufacturing of chocolate. As of 2009 they supplied approximately 30% of the cocoa produced in the world, yet smallholder farmers struggle to get financing as they try to earn a living while satisfying the world's sweet tooth!
Several farmers and laborers in Ivory Coast who grow and harvest the key ingredient in chocolate — cocoa beans — have never tasted the finished product. In fact, they’ve never even heard of it.
Watch this amazing video and witness their real reactions as they get a chance to taste the fruit of their labors. They react like young children eating chocolate for the first time...some of them are a bit suspicious about the authenticity of the product...They just can't believe that the trees they've been growing and those magic seeds can create this masterpiece of taste!
Still in 21st century there are people who don’t have the opportunity to taste a chocolate and the most shocking is that those people produce the main ingredient! Really..how unfair our world can be?
