Where does chocolate come from?
The cacao tree grows in a tropical climate, usually in the shade of taller trees as it will not thrive if over exposed to wind and sun.
Who discovered cocoa beans?
When was chocolate first made?
However, today's chocolates that "melt in the mouth" were first made by another Swiss confectioner, Rodolphe Lindt, in 1879. He added cocoa butter which enables a bar of chocolate to snap, but then dissolve in the mouth.
Does chocolate have any health benefits?
There is also some evidence to suggest that dark chocolate is better for you than the milk variety. Dark chocolate is higher in cocoa, which helps to increase the levels of HDL (High Density Lipoproteins), the "good" type of cholesterol that helps to prevent arteries getting clogged up.
Is it addictive?
