It is believed that Mayas, 2600 years ago, were already drinking chocolate. At this time, chocolate was consumed in America as a sweet and spicy beverage, seasoned with chilli pepper, vanilla and pimiento. The beverage was expensive and thus reservedto elites, and cocoa was even often used as a currency. The story of chocolate begins in Europe with the discovery of America and Christopher Colombus brought some chocolate back to Spain for Queen Isabella, but Hernando de Soto introduced it much more broadly.
