We offer a wide variety of chocolate from milk to dark, but this delicious treat wasn’t always the way it is now. Chocolate consumption can be dated back to Pre-Columbian Mexico were the Mayans and Aztecs used the beans from the cocoa tree to make a drink called Xocoatll that was bitter and frothy. From 1528 up until 1847, chocolate was not widely accepted and was still made into the frothy bitter drink the Mayans and Aztecs used to consume. In 1847 Fry and Sons created the first “eating chocolate” but also did not attract much attention because it was still bitter in taste. It wasn’t until Daniel Peter, a famous Swiss chocolatier, experimented with the chocolate and added milk to balance the flavors did it become a huge success.
