Yes, its capital is Sacramento, but it is not however the biggest city in California. Indeed, its most populated metropolis’ are Los Angeles (which is the world’s movie capital), San Francisco (the world’s high technology capital) and San Diego (which possesses a important military center).
In reference to the Gold Rush period, California’s nickname is ‘The Golden State’, It is also the symbol of the ‘American Dream’.
California possesses a very powerful and dynamic economy and for good reason - it is the leading state in the U.S. in terms of G.D.P (gross domestic product).

Innovation is one of California’s biggest assets, which is furthermore why this state where the most patents are initialised (one quarter of the patents are initialised in this state).
The Tradition of Chocolate in California: a reality
The Gold Rush was also an occasion for research pioneers to discover European chocolate. Furthermore, this is the case of the Guittard Chocolate Company, founded by Etienne Guittard, who immigrated to California in 1850. If the grandfather of the current president of the company can’t find any nuggets, then he’ll discover French chocolate on the spot. Facing a moral dilemma ever since, he opens his first chocolate factory in San Francisco. It is also important to note that a chocolate confectionary already existed back in the 19th century. The colder climate in San Francisco in relation to Los Angeles has furthermore determined the installation of chocolate factories in this region.
Chocolatiers also benefit from the affairs between the Maritimes and South America, Oceania and Southeast Asia since it is easiest to import cocoa beans that way. It is evident the taste of that trademark West Coast chocolate will be different than that of the East Coast in the United States.
