Chocolate and other sweets have been banned thanks to the political reign of the Good For You Party, and the new laws are enforced strictly, with force if need be. Smudger and Huntley are two teen boys determined to eat chocolate again. They search out rumored chocolate bootleggers, eventually starting their own chocolate underground distribution.


Chocolate Underground is an adaptation of British novelist Alex Shearer's satirical work Bootleg. It follows two English boys who create a bootleg chocolate factory after their country bans chocolate consumption.

It's like Prohibition, but instead of ruthless gangsters making piles of money from illegal alcohol, a couple of high school students try to evade a government abolition of chocolate and all other sweets. Also, the police have giant robots specifically built for sniffing out and arresting chocolate enthusiasts. Yes, it's as ridiculous as it sounds.

Chocolate Underground is only made up of 13 three-minute episodes streamed on the internet, so there's only so much to say about it, although the show does cover a surprising amount of plot in the limited time it has. It's based on a satirical novel about two English boys with the read more

Chocolate Underground is a political satire that takes place in an alternate reality where the land is ruled by a totalitarian government known as the 'Good For You Party'. This government has banned the possession and consumption of sugar, honey, chocolate, and any other kind of sweets you can think of; and have established a police force to enforce this law. In the anime we follow our two heroes, Huntley and Smudger, as they attempt to bring chocolate back to the world.

Story - 6/10
The premise of the series shows promise but is not executed in the way I personally think it should have been. read more

My first review, but I didn't like any of the others here, and so felt compelled to write something on this cute, refreshing fun time.

Synopsis – Chocolate has been banned by a newly risen government entity (The Ministry of Health and Well Being) that has convinced the public that they are acting in their best interest. Two school-aged boys become interested in the idea of bringing chocolate back to the people, and after hearing about a secret smuggling ring, become entangled in a bootlegging operation to “fill the world with chocolate” once again.

A simple premise, and simply executed.

To be honest, I decided to watch read more

Chocolate Underground is a fantastic quick watch. You'd think a show revolving around chocolate would just be a silly children's show but it digs deeper than that. Now the story of children rebelling and people getting arrested for going against corrupt power is nothing original but Chocolate Underground puts a twist on it that is more lighthearted. Since it is a short running show there isn't much room for character development but that doesn't mean it's not worth the watch. You get to watch these kids get something they love taken away, meaning chocolate, for the "greater good" but there are still secret underground trading read more
