A chocolate map is a menu or pictorial guide to the contents of a chocolate box. Technically, a map is a spatial not a gastronomic representation, but this usage shows just how comfortable we are with the concept of living in a chocolate space. So comfortable, in fact, that in 2008 and 2009 Godiva created a room in New York’s Bryant Park Hotel entirely furnished in chocolate – replete with chocolate tables and chairs, a chocolate fireplace and chandelier, and chocolate works of art hanging on the chocolate walls.
