All chocolate is not created equal

European Union member nations are in a tizzy. Is it over the instability of the common euro? No, it's the definition of chocolate that troubles Greeks, Brits, Finns, and their neighbors. The EU can't decide what exactly constitutes "European chocolate." Purists (including Italians, Belgians, and Spaniards) insist on cocoa butter as the only vegetable fat that can be used. They argue that chocolate from countries such as England and Austria is inferior. The debate looks likely to continue indefinitely.
