I wonder if you know ALL about chocolate.
It was discovered 2,000 years ago in the tropical rain forests of the Americas.
The first people to have eaten chocolate were the Classic Period Maya (250-900 AD) they mixed ground cacua seeds with seasoning’s to make a bitter spicy drink which was said to be good for your health.
The cocoa pod was used in religious rituals, marriage ceremonies and was said to be a food of the gods, to have wisdom, and aphrodisiac qualities. They say that Casanova, made a habit of drinking chocolate before his romantic escapades !!!!!!!!!
The first machine made chocolate was produced in Barcelona in 1780 and the first ever chocolate bar was made by the British chocolate maker Fry & Sons in the early 1800’s.
By 1868, the first Valentines Day chocolate was made by Richard Cadbury.
Studies have shown that dark chocolate is good for your heart, it can reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol. Only a small bar per day though :):)
