Theme: History of Chocolates

Thought: Chocolate symbolizes, as does no other food, luxury, comfort, sensuality, gratification, and love.

Speech: Chocolate’s popularity began in ancient Mexico and Central America, where the cacao tree grew wild. The Maya and Aztec peoples prepared a hot, bitter drink with cocoa beans. In 1519 the Aztec emperor Montezuma II served the Spanish explorer Hernán Cortés a chocolate drink.

Cortés brought this beverage back to Spain. With sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon added, it became a favorite with the Spanish kings and queens. In the 1600s the drink became popular among rich people in France and England.

Today the top chocolate-producing countries include the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, and France.
