Kel's Fun Fact: Chocolate

Chocolate comes from the Nahuatl word xocolātl, which means bitter water. The earliest documented uses of cultivated cacao were in Mexico, most notably by the Aztecs, who usually used it for a beverage.

John Cadbury, the founder of the Canbury chocolate thought chocolate was a good alternative to alcohol.

Raw chocolate contains at least 75% cacao.

Dark chocolate can lower blood pressure and is a good antioxidant.

I prefer Nestle chocolate to Hershey chocolate. I have not had enough Cadbury chocolate to know where it falls in the ranking. I also tend to agree with Roux in the movie Chocolat that hot chocolate is the best chocolate.
