The Secrets of Real Chocolate
Chocolate begins in the jungle, hidden in the fruits of the cacao tree (Theobroma Cacao - Food of the Gods). The elongated cacao pods contain an unexpected treasure: cacao beans, the source of the chocolate flavor we love so much. Cacao (a Mayan word, pronounced kah-KOW) is native to Central America, where the ancient Maya and Olmec civilizations established the first plantations around three thousand years ago! Europeans, by contrast, didn't learn of chocolate's delights until 1519 in the court of Montezuma II, the Aztec emperor.
