The chocolate is known as a tasty greed, a tropical product, but do we know when we crunch a chocolate bar, we associate the fact of one history to a legend.
From the Aztec word “xocoatl”. The word origin comes from the nahuatl: “atl” means water and “xoco” inspired by the sound when they mixed the liquid.
The mayas are the first to invent the cacao beverage, hot and bitter, made with the grind cacao beans and spices. Later, the aztecs changed the recipe, sweetening it with vanilla or honey. So they called the beverage “xocoatl” which it means (bitter water).
It’s in Mexico, land of myths and beliefs, where the chocolate was born. An Aztec legend tells that Quetzalcoatl, a beneficent and wise god brought the cacao to the earth and gave the cacao tree as a gift, by then the cacao beans were reserved to the Gods only. They attributed beneficial virtues to the cacao… even now a days…
