BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW

Chocolate A very sweet history
It seems that, almost from the dawn of time, chocolate lovers have been indulging their taste for this sweet treat. But the ways we consume it have changed drastically over time. The Maya are generally given credit for creating the first modern chocolate beverage over 2,000 years ago. But the earliest record of using chocolate dates back even farther. Archaeologists say the oldest known cultivation and use of cacao dates to Honduras, from about 1100 to 1400 BC.

The Maya civilization grew cacao trees, and used the cacao seeds to make a frothy, bitter drink. Documents in Maya hieroglyphs state that chocolate was used for ceremonial purposes, in addition to everyday life. They were likely using chocolate beginning around 400 AD, as a sweet treat, and as a serious beverage.

In the 15th century, Aztecs associated chocolate with Xochiquetzal, the goddess of fertility, and often used chocolate drinks as offerings. They seasoned these drinks with vanilla, and chilli pepper. This potent blend could fight fatigue, and put drinkers in a good mood. So it seems that when we indulge our sweet tooth, we're connecting with history!
