The True History of Chocolate
National Chocolate Candy Day
-- Did you know during the Second World War, the U.S. Government commissioned Milton Hershey to create a candy bar to be included in the soldier's rations? The candy bar chosen was the famous Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar.
Here are 5 more things to know about chocolate:
 🍫 The word chocolate comes from the Aztec word, Xocolatl, which ironically means bitter water.
 🍫 The biggest bar of chocolate ever made was created in 2000 and weighed 5,000 pounds. Turin is the city in Italy that can be proud of this accomplishment.
 🍫 While the US produces the most chocolate and consumes the most pounds every year, the Swiss consume the most per capita, followed closely by the English.
 🍫 Chocolate manufacturers currently use 40% of the world's almonds and 20% of the world's peanuts.
 🍫 Every Russian and American space voyage has included chocolate bars.

-- This delightful tale of one of the world’s favorite foods draws on botany, archaeology, and culinary history to present a complete and accurate history of chocolate. It began some 4,000 years ago in the jungles of Mexico and Central America with the chocolate tree, Theobroma Cacao, and the complex processes necessary to transform its bitter seeds into what is now known as chocolate. This was centuries before chocolate was consumed in generally unsweetened liquid form and used as currency by the Maya and the Aztecs after them. The Spanish conquest of Central America introduced chocolate to Europe, where it first became the drink of kings and aristocrats and then was popularized in coffeehouses. Industrialization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries made chocolate available to all, and now, in our own time, it has become once again a luxury item.
