Chocolate is made from cocoa beans. Once these beans are harvested, they need to be fermented. This means that they are inserted into an earthy area near the place where they were harvested. The sun makes them rot a little bit. After that, they can be taken out. Of course, due to this process many insects swarm in the vicinity of the harvest. Nearly all of the chocolate that we eat has bugs in it. This is because it would be too expensive to produce chocolate without insects. The disgusting thing is that the FDA allows a slight amount of bugs or animal to be present in most foods that we eat.
