The shell is removed to produce cacao nibs, which are then ground to cocoa mass, pure chocolate in rough form. Because the cocoa mass is usually liquefied before being molded with or without other ingredients, it is called chocolate liquor. The liquor also may be processed into two components: cocoa solids and cocoa butter. Unsweetened baking chocolate (bitter chocolate) contains primarily cocoa solids and cocoa butter in varying proportions. Cocoa solids are a source of flavonoids[3] and alkaloids, such as theobromine, phenethylamine and caffeine.[4] Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world, and a vast number of foodstuffs involving chocolate have been created.

Jelly Bean Stop Motion Video Music videos need to be memorable if they want to stand out from the crowd in the 3 minutes of play time they usually get. Some artists have the budget to hire a film crew and pile on the special effects, while others just get away with a camera focused on the band playing the song. But for me, the most memorable videos are those that try something different and don’t necessarily need a big budget. That is the case with the latest video from Kina Grannis and her song In Your Arms. It is Grannis singing in front of a very colorful moving background, which is nice on its own, but then you learn the background is made using nothing but jelly beans. 288,000 jelly beans in fact. As the video progresses the animation gets progressively more complicated and adventurous. You can check out the video here, I recommend watching it full screen HD if you can. The director Greg Jardin got an animation created from a storyboard, which then formed a running animation of the whole video. via PetaPixel
