CHOCOLATE CREATIONS

The History Of Chocolate

 

The tasty secret of the cacao (kah KOW) tree

was discovered 2,000 years ago in the tropical

rain forests of the Americas. The pods of this tree

contain seeds that can be processed into

chocolate. The story of how chocolate grew from

a local Mesoamerican beverage into a global

sweet encompasses many cultures and

continents.

 

 

The first people known to have made chocolate

were the ancient cultures of Mexico and Central

America. These people, including the Maya and

Aztec, mixed ground cacao seeds with various

seasonings to make a spicy, frothy drink.

 

 

Later, the Spanish conquistadors brought the

seeds back home to Spain, where new recipes

were created. Eventually, and the drink’s

popularity spread throughout Europe. Since then,

new technologies and innovations have changed

the texture and taste of chocolate, but it still

remains one of the world’s favorite flavors.

 

 

From a simple ripe cocoa seed pod before they've been picked to a delicious treat we've known to love.

 

SUGAR FREE chocolate also available!
