Chocolate is a typically sweetened food produced from the seed of the tropical Theobroma cacao tree.
Cacao has been cultivated for at least three millennia in Mexico, Central America, and Northern South America. The majority of the Mesoamerican people made chocolate beverages known as xocolātl, a Nahuatl word meaning “bitter water”. The seeds of the cacao tree have an intense bitter taste, and must be fermented to develop the flavor.
Later the Europeans sweetened and fattened chocolate by adding refined sugar and milk. Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world, and a vast number of foodstuffs involving chocolate have been created.
Enjoying high-quality chocolate is an experience like no other. The flavors are rich and complex, and there is a large variation in flavors among various chocolates.
