November 29: Chocolates Day

Chocolate. Who doesn’t enjoy the melody of those three syllables?

The history of chocolate began right here in the Americas: The cacao tree first grew wild in the tropical rainforests of the Amazon basin.

Our word chocolate comes from the Aztec cacahuatl, based on the earlier Maya word xocoatl (for details, see the Chocolate Glossary - http://www.thenibble.com/reviews/main/chocolate/glossary.asp).
