    Chocolate and the MayansEver wondered where this deliciously decadent treat originated? It’s hardly surprising that chocolate has been described as the “food of the gods”; it’s named after the Latin word for Cacao, Theobroma which means exactly that. Chocolate has a long and rich history; throughout early South American civilisation, this humble bean has played an important role in both trade and ritual. As early as 1,600 years ago the Olmecs, Mayans and Aztecs indulged in a chocolate drink called chocolatl made from cacao seeds, even sharing it in betrothal and marriage ceremonies; quite possibly the first link between chocolate and romance.

    We love this quote – “Nine out of ten people love chocolate, the tenth lies.” John Tullius Let’s face it: chocolate is one of life’s greatest pleasures – all over the world people love chocolate.

    Chocolate Tasters Club
    It has been the inspiration for novelists and filmmakers to produce wonderful movies like “Chocolat” and “Chocolate Factory” and because of its provocative and intoxicating flavour, chocolate has become known as “the food of the gods and the symbol of love”. Gourmet gifts of handmade chocolates are given to friends, family and lovers on some of our most celebrated occasions like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.


    Chocolate has been seducing us for centuries beginning with the Mayan Indians of Mexico who were amongst the first chocolate lovers to believe it was a gift from the gods — a sentiment still shared by many of us today. Chocolate is a sensual indulgence for women as it portrays images of love and romance and for this reason it has become a way for men to show their appreciation and love for the women in their lives.

    Chocolate - the Health Food
    But recent research shows that chocolate provides a natural form of health-promoting substances called flavonoids, these help prevent heart disease and cancer. Chocolate contains antioxidants and this fact alone has generated a lot of interest as studies show that these compounds are more powerful antioxidants than EGCG in tea, which is a strong antioxidant. Up until recently we were never made aware of the amazing health benefits of this incredible little bean, not to mention the fascinating allure and irresistible flavour of chocolate. Chocolate has been a source of nourishment for many decades and it has only in recent years – much to the delight of the entire world – been declared that this truly decadent substance is actually good for us! But more of the healthy stuff in a later post…Read More
