Chocolate has been described as "food of the Gods" and whether you love it or hate it, it can have lasting wellbeing and medicinal properties.
As a chocoholic I have loved investing and discovering chocolate's fascinating history, where chocolate comes from today and also the wellbeing and health treatments.
The World Of Chocolate - Cacao
History Of Chocolate
Theobroma Cacao or commonly known as the Cacao Tree was discovered more than 2000 years ago in the deep rain forests of Central America. Today it is grown throughout Central and South America as well as parts of Africa and South East Asia.
"Did you know back in 2008/2009 the world cocoa production was 3,515,000 tonnes. This is equivalent to the weight of a line of double-decker buses stretching more than three times the length of Britain!" - www.Kew.org
