The Chocolate Is Coming! The Chocolate Is Coming!

Well, something had to give him energy for that Midnight Ride.

Now we can get fat the way our forefathers did! Adams' Hospitality says that Captain Jackson's Colonial Chocolate Shop opens tomorrow at the Old North Church, offering an "authentic colonial-style chocolate recipe," called American Heritage. (In a modern twist, it was developed by Mars.) This new shop, the only one of its kind in New England, will "educate visitors on the importance of chocolate during the American colonial period." There's even an exhibit that explains how chocolate was consumed by such luminaries as Paul Revere. (We're guessing the same way as nowadays, except with lots more rye.) [NEW via AH]
