We’re all familiar with chocolate, in one form or another. Whether that’s a bitter, rich high cocoa content dark chocolate, a sickly-sweet milk or white chocolate, or a milky drink we sup at night before bedtime or when it’s cold outside. What many people don’t know is quite where our chocolate comes from.
All chocolate starts its life as a seed, in a pod, on a tree. The tree in question is the Theobroma cacao tree, which literally means; cacao, the food of the gods!
