Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

Michelle Branch first burst onto the music scene in 2001 at the ripe age of 18. Three hits - "Everywhere," "All You Wanted" and "Goodbye to You" - and a year later, Branch found herself accepting a Grammy Award with Carlos Santana for their single "The Game of Love."

Now at 27, Branch is back in the studio working on an album, which will be released by Warner Brothers Records in 2011 - but music isn't the only thing she's making. She's also making some sweet, sweet pie.

CNN's Richard Quest talks to filmmaker U. Roberto Romano, whose documentary "The Dark Side of Chocolate" investigates child labor and cocoa fields in the Ivory Coast.

But before you bite into a chocolate bar or take a sip of hot cocoa, consider, where did it come from?

It may be that the treat is the product of someone else's hard labor. The person who may have sold it or who may have made it may not even be an adult.
