History Of Hot Chocolate
The first chocolate drink is believed to have been created by the Mayan civilisation around 2500-3000 years ago. Cocoa was an important part of the Aztec culture, and was brought to the West by the Spanish conquistadors under Cortes.
Originally as sugar hadn’t reached the Americas, the chocolate drink was rather bitter. Eventually sweet tasting hot chocolate was developed and became a high class drink of the aristocracy.
Nowadays it is an extremely popular drink for all classes, and is enjoyed in most countries. The European version being rather thick compared to the thin instant stuff popular in the United States.
Hot Chocolate Facts
Dating back thousands of years, it was used by the Olmec civilisation of Southern Mexico around 1700 BC.
The Mayans and Aztecs, mixed it with chillies and roasted corn to produce a bitter drink. It was the Spanish conquistadors who added sugar and spices to sweeten it.
Aztec warriors drank it before going into battle, as the jolt of caffeine it delivered was believed to have restorative powers. Later gaining a reputation as an aphrodisiac, leading to it being locked away by monks.
The largest ever cup of hot chocolate was 880 gallons, made by 300 local students working with teachers to produce a pool sized brew.
A study by Cornell University has shown that chocolate contains more antioxidants than wine or tea. Potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.
