Information about Chocolate
Why not wrap a bar of chocolate in brown paper and call it an emergency ration specially for someone you love

For thousands of years the Cacao Tree was worshipped by the ancient civilizations of Central America who believed it to be of divine origin. Even the word Cacao is actually a Mayan word meaning "God Food". Originally the Mayans made a spicy bitter sweet drink (a bit like coffee) by roasting and pounding the beans of the Cacao tree mixing them with maize and chilli peppers and letting the mixture ferment in water. They called the resulting drink, Xocolatl.
. . . When the Spanish reached Central America in the early 1500’s they were keen to bring the new drink back to Europe but changed its name to Chocolat because that was easier to pronounce and added sugar and vanilla favour to make it more acceptable to the European taste.
. . . Within a 100 years chocolate houses (chocolate drinking clubs) had sprung up all over Europe. However, it wasn’t until 1847, over three hundred years after chocolate beans and powder had originally been brought back to Europe, that the British company, Fry & Sons of Bristol, mixed Sugar, Cocoa Powder and Cocoa Butter to produce the world’s first solid chocolate bar.
. . . In Britain after the outbreak of World War II (1939) certain essential foods and home goods were rationed to make sure that there would be enough to go round for everybody. Amongst other things, in July 1942, after nearly three years of war, sweets and chocolate were rationed so that each person could only have a little bit each week. Despite the fact that the war ended in 1945, chocolate rationing continued for a further eight years, only ending in 1953.
