The world's leading chocolate taster shares his wild ride to attain the most envied job, and explains his warning heard around the world: that we might soon run out of chocolate.

Angus Kennedy, dubbed "the real life Willy Wonka," has the best job of all time, tasting candy for a living. But the journey to his sweet life has followed a rocky road. In this inspiring, smile inducing memoir, he shares how despite an alcoholic mother, a father dying of cancer, and multiple brushes with death, he rose to fame and became the king of cocoa. He also gives a fascinating tour of the little-known chocolate industry and answers such questions as: what the state of the cocoa bean is and if we're going to run out of chocolate, is chocolate good for you, and how to know if you're eating high-quality chocolate.

Doused in Kennedy's signature humor and wit, this unforgettable memoir is a tale of dysfunction, but also redemption. It is baked to perfection for lovers of great chocolate and great stories, and reveals the secrets of the chocolate world and its king, the bitter and the sweet.
