A Brief History:
Origination: National Chocolate Day celebrates the origin of chocolate. People celebrate every day with chocolate, and special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays and a great day, to go alongside. The history of chocolate and its creation from the cocoa bean can be traced from the Xocolatl-loving Olmec, Maya and Aztecs of Mexico dating back to the era of between 1900 BC to 1500 BC. The Maya considered chocolate to be food of the gods, with the cacao tree being held to be sacred. They also buried dignitaries with bowls of chocolate.
More Recent Evolution: Since the Mayan period, the list of ingredients with the relation to most chocolate products has expanded vastly past simple cacao. Companies have reduced the cocoa content to decrease costs related to production and also to increase chocolate’s shelf life, making the once very valuable delicacy to have varying and limitless variety.
The Last Few Centuries: In the late 17th century people began to mix chocolate drinks with milk to make them taste better. The first chocolate factory in America opened in 1765.
More Recently: Today, chocolate is still the very delicious dessert that it has always attained from back in the old days every year. Every year, countless companies come out with a new variation, and present companies introduce different renditions and even “limited edition” variations of the recipes used to produce chocolate products. More and more renditions and recipes have arisen in more recent years. The microwave had given more opportunities and different styles, especially after inventing the cup-shaped round and square microwavable light grey surfaces that refract the microwave to ensure more even cooking.
Celebrated: October 28th every year!
