Chocolate is delicious! You might like it as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, a drink, the cocoa beans themselves; There are so many options available for every taste-bud.
But where did it come from? You might ask...
The Cacao tree was discovered about three thousand years ago in Mexico, Central and South America and it was initially used mostly as a beverage. The beverage was made to taste bitter and spicy and yet it still became popular.
Hotel Chocolat seems to have made it a bit of a mission to collect the best chocolate from anywhere in the world and when they do not buy it, they grow their own in the Caribbean.
They really are lovely. There is a Hotel Chocolat near me and the chocolate from them is amazing. I could live in there! I usually look the other way when I go by it in order to avoid temptation!
Wow, these sound heavenly! Any of them would make a welcome gift.
