Chocolate is a type of treat that is derived from the seeds of the cacao tree. Chocolate is extremely popular throughout the world, and is beloved by probably over one billion people. Its true influence on society and the human race is unprecedented. There lies a fabled “land of chocolate” that has yet to be discovered, though some suggest that it might be Germany or Belgium.
Chocolate tastes great, but can be very bitter before sugar or milk is applied to it. It’s generally a sweet thing, but is occasionally used for savory dishes like molé.
Chocolate became an official snack on June 19th 2012.
