Chocolate is immortal , it's been used , it's been tasted , perfected throught so many years . The aztecs were the first to use chocolate , as a drink and it was believed that it was the perfect cure for the soul . Along with it's medicinal purposes , it cured our inner part , our soul .
It is also believed that every person has it's own brand of chocolate , depending on his personality .... it can be chilli chocolate , mint chocolate , and many more . It just depends on how it reacts on each person .
Now you're saying ... '' Oh come on stop talking crap about this wizardry with chocolate , it doesen't make sense ! '' ... But it does , have you ever eaten a chocolate and the next day another type and throughout each taste you felt different ? You probably felt more enthusiastic or i don' know maybe more grumpy ( which means that is certainly not your chocolate ) , but you had different types of reactions .
Chocolate is like wine and coffee , it comes in all sorts of different brands and variety of cocoa beans
There are four major types of cacao that are cultivated : Criollo , Forastero , Trinitario and Nacional . Each and everyone of these cacao beans are different , the taste , aroma , even in it's attributes . I find this to be interesting , i mean just think the smell , the taste , everything is so diverse and this is what i enjoy ... Diversity !
Oh and by the way i think now you're wandering , '' What types of cacao beans am i experiencing when i eat my chocolate . From what i know i think it's Forastero since they have a higher production of cacao beans , but you can never tell , it's more of a mystery .
As we are all pretty much informed about the Mayans , they were the first to use cacao beans as a ritual beverage , made from the ground cocoa beans mixed with water , black pepper , vanilla and spices . This beverage was shared in their marriage ceremonies and was one of the first links we know about chocolate and romance .
As for chocolate being an aphrodisiac , i tried to check for some information , and i found that they did not prove that chocolate is an aphrodisiac yet .
Personally i like to believe that chocolate is a symbol of love , forever immortal and full of flavour .
