The Historic Division of Mars: From Bean to Bar: About The Historic Division of Mars:

The Historic Division of Mars’ mission is to share chocolate’s rich past by allowing people to taste and experience the fusion of history and Mars’ 100 years of chocolate making excellence.  This is accomplished through scholarly research, product development and education.
In 2003, Mars undertook an extensive global research initiative to uncover the true history of chocolate. Through a partnership with University of California at Davis and historic partners such as Colonial Williamsburg, Mount Vernon, Fort Ticonderoga, Historic Deerfield and the Fortress of Louisbourg, Mars  leveraged an international team of historians, food researchers, and experts  to compile the most comprehensive and accurate account of chocolate's journey to North America, titled Chocolate: History, Culture and Heritage. Wiley 2009.
