Chocolate as a Teaching Tool

Fast Company’s Co.Design shared their Infographic of the Day, “A Visual Taxonomy Of Every Chocolate Candy, Ever”, and it made me smile. Not just for the chocolate and food aspect, though I freely admit both of those categories make me smile, but for the nostalgia it brings to mind.

It is a graphically appealing design in a very artsy way. I would purchase and frame this for my wall. In fact, I am doing just that and putting it in my office. What a conversation starter? A perfect way to demonstrate the application of taxonomies in a tangible way that can be grasped by anyone of any technological level, or any level of obsession with chocolate.
