With the establishment of the Good For You Party's authoritarian regime, unhealthy foods and sugar have been banned. As a result, the bakery Smudger Moore's father owns is suffering financially from being unable to sell any of their typical sweet menu items. Smudger's friend Huntley Hunter is also frustrated by the prohibition, as he cannot keep a promise he made to his late father. Angered by the unjust world they live in, the two young boys set out to break the new social order—but the uphill battle they are faced with is a lot more than they bargained for.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Chocolate Underground is an adaptation of British novelist Alex Shearer's 2003 satirical work Bootleg.

A simple premise, and simply executed.

To be honest, I decided to watch ...

F**K THE POLICE comin' straight from the (chocolate) underground!!

In a world where health regulations have gone waaay too overboard, chocolate has been banned as an unhealthy choice!

Much like Demolition Mans scene in Taco Bell stating that salt was banned because it was bad for you. Here we have a tale of a similar possibility by overzealous nutjobs. No chocolate with DEEZ nuts.
ITs all been written about in science fiction; things being banned, rights and choices restricted, overzeouls governments. Hell it HAS happend before, and things seem pretty familiar with actual current events.

So two young men form a plan to revitalize their ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
