Summary

"The inside story of the 150-year rivalry among Cadbury, Hershey, Nestle, and Mars is a fascinating and luscious tale. Deborah Cadbury, great-great-great- granddaughter of 19th-century chocolate maker John Cadbury, tells it eloquently in Chocolate Wars, drawing the reader into her epic of family and industry with clear love for her subject."-- Philadelphia Inquirer "This is a delicious book, seductive as a tray of bonbons, a Fancy Box in every way."-- Washington Post "[ Chocolate Wars] pits idealism against capitalism, religious piety against the forces of greed and cutthroat competition. Though, like great fiction, it defies belief, it's the true story of our favorite guilty pleasure. Cadbury's book, like her namesake's famous sampler, is full of surprises and delights." -- Christian Science Monitor "The reader of Chocolate Warsfeels they are getting an insider's view."-- Financial Times "Fascinating...Read this excellent book." -- Los Angeles Times
