We investigated Chocolate and how it was first introduced to the world.
Do you like Chocolate? We learned today that Europeans eat more pounds of Chocolate each year than the USA. Even through when it was first delivered to Spain they did not like the bitter taste of the Cacao so they added sugar to make it taste better in their drinks. They keep it a secret for a long time. The Europeans did not learn about this secret until 100 years later when they hear about adding the sugar. Do you know where cacao beans grow? How many beans does it take to make a pound of Chocolate? Do you know how much Chocolate is eaten at Valentine’s Day?
