Chocolate has been around long before we started selling quality chocolates at wholesale prices. The Aztec's version of chocolate was a hot chocolate-y beverage with a powerful bitter taste. Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortes named it "the divine drink which fights fatigue" when he first tasted chocolate. He noticed that it helped give his men energy and encouraged them to drink as much chocolate as they could.
It wasn't long before they would have much more chocolate than they could handle. The army of Cortes soon found the cacao warehouse of Aztec emperor Montezuma II. There Montezuma had accumulated 96 million cacao seeds. That amount of chocolate could make as much as 25 million chocolate bars! That's what I call bulk chocolate! But chocolate hearts and bars wouldn't be around for a few hundred more years. Though the Swiss perfected the chocolate bar candy, it was actually a Dutch man who first created chocolate in its contemporary hard "bar".
Chocolate has come a long way. From the far south of Mexico to Europe and around the world, chocolate is the most popular form of candy by far. Try some of our chocolates at wholesale prices today!
Fun Fact: The energy that comes from Cacao (and thus chocolate) is actually not from caffeine, as is widely believed, but another stimulant called Theobromine.
