The history of chocolate
The origin of chocolate is disputed, but it is thought that cocoa beans were used in Mayan and Aztec ceremonies as early as 600 CE. When Spanish conquistadors invaded Mesoamerica, they found the locals drinking xocolatl - a bitter drink made from cocoa beans, water, and honey. The word chocolate comes from xocolatl, which means bitter water.
Today, Mexico produces more than 40% of the world's cocoa supply.
Different types of chocolate
The type of chocolate you choose depends on your preference for a certain flavor or texture.
