Chocolate then, chocolate now.

Skimming the CNN headlines this morning, I came across something funny but honestly, not that shocking: Ancients knew chocolate was good

“Residents of Central America were enjoying chocolate drinks more than 3,000 years ago, a half millennium earlier than previously thought, new research shows.”

Basically, archaeologists studied pottery containing the residue of a chemical only found in the cacao plant. Which means that ancient Americans were down with chocolate.

And really, who isn’t? I defy you to step up and proclaim non-love for the cacao tree, which delivers its seeds into our hands to become one of the most precious materials on this earth!

I knew you wouldn’t have the guts. Instead, proclaim your love of chocolate by lending your obsessive chocolate knowledge to answering these questions:

Mmm… Now I think I’ll go make myself a cup of hot cocoa…
