One of the most loved food products in the world is chocolate.

Chocolate is made from the roasted beans of the cacao tree, native to Central and South America where it can be traced back to the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations who consumed it as a beverage by combining the dried, ground beans with water.

On travels to the 'New World' Spanish explorers were introduced to these beans and took them back to Europe.

Originally cocoa was exclusively for drinking until a technique for making a solid form of chocolate was devised in the 1850's.
