The History Of Chocolate

Benefits of Chocolate

An interesting find for all those chocolate connoisseur out there is the History Channel’s take on the history of Chocolate and its place in American society.

Part one of the a four part series.

Much like the show “How it is made”, watch the intricacies in how various chocolates are made and how they connect with American society. These connections can be romantic as found in Valentines day or more scientific. Also learn about the ancient history of Chocolate and how its spread throughout the world and became what it is today.

If watching a video isn’t your thing, check out this cool article by Smithsonian.

Learn about the history of your favorite treat and how it relates to American culture!
