Some Fun Facts About Chocolate:
Chocolate is actually a … fruit! Unbelievable, right? Chocolate is made from cacao, which comes from the seeds of the tropical cacao tree.
The cacao bean, the rawest form of chocolate, can be harvested and consumed directly (cacao), roasted and turned into powder (cocoa), or made into chocolate, a total crowd-pleaser!
Cacao and cocoa are different: cacao refers to cacao beans that have not been roasted, cocoa is made of cacao beans that have been roasted.
The smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves, which in turn trigger relaxation. Dark chocolate may improve blood flow, lower blood pressure, and may even help to lose some weight.
It takes approximately 400 cacao beans to make one pound (450 gr.) of chocolate!
Contrary to popular belief, mice actually prefer chocolate over cheese every single time, according to scientists’ experiments!
Cacao beans were valuable to early Mesoamericans. They used cacao beans as currency for decades!
The first chocolate drink is believed to have been created by the Maya civilization around 2500–3000 years ago, and a cocoa drink was an essential part of Aztec culture.
