For most of us, chocolate is a guilty pleasure, but for others it is an undeniable necessity of life. Americans, on average, consume 11.2 pounds annually and the British devour 24 pounds of chocolaty goodness – but even they don’t take the top! That honor would be awarded to both the Swiss and Germans.
Don’t worry – chocolohism is nothing new. In fact, it’s believed that even the Mayans were addicted to cacao beans, the utmost basic form of chocolate, which they used in their ancient drink recipes.
By the 14th century, chocolate drink recipes were being used not only for sensory pleasures, but medicinally, as well, to treat common ailments. However, a young doctor in Mexico questioned the medicinal benefits of chocolate in the 1700s, believing it was the culprit behind hysteria.
He was partially right: chocolate is responsible for…our hysterical cravings for chocolate! If you can’t get enough of this wonderfully sweet flavor, then you’ll certainly want to try to make your own gourmet drink with Amoretti Premium Milk Chocolate Syrup.
