This review is from: Chocolate: The Sweet History (Hardcover)
Chocolate: The Sweet History details the history of chocolate form its origins in MesoAmerica dating at least as far back as 600BC to present day. In the earliest times, chocolate was used in a spicy drink. This drink evolved into a sweet drink as high classed Europeans adopted chocolate into their culture. Evolving techniques used to work the cocoa beans eventually led to the wide variety of chocolate that we see today.

Chocolate: The Sweet History includes a lot of interesting tidbits and facts about chocolate, about chocolate making techniques, and about the innovative people who are responsible for the variety of products that we have today.

I was surprised at how little I actually knew about chocolate before opening this book. Now, I find myself bringing up interesting chocolate facts in conversations. I'm sure most readers will find themselves doing the same thing. Many readers will also likely find themselves reminiscing as they look through the pages of this book at the various advertisements and product labels illustrating company and product changes over the years.
