The History of Chocolate

Chocolate has been enjoyed for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations. These early civilisations believed that chocolate had medicinal properties and used it in religious ceremonies.

When Europeans first encountered chocolate in the 16th century, it was consumed primarily as a bitter drink. It wasn't until the 19th century that chocolate bars as we know them today were first produced.

Today, chocolate is a multi-billion dollar industry, with countless varieties and flavours to choose from. From milk chocolate to dark chocolate, white chocolate to chocolate with added nuts or fruit, there is a chocolate treat to suit every taste.
