Why? Because adding palm oil to chocolate is a cheapskate way to up the profits for the manufacturer and adds nothing to the quality or taste. What it does do is threaten the habitat of orang-utans.

    Good job on informing us about the palm oil in chocolate. There are so many wrongs we all do in ignorance. More education I say and thanks to peope like you, we can have it.
