You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t like chocolate. While it’s mostly known for its taste (and the associated cravings), it’s also a good source of nutrients when in its pure form and eaten in moderation.
This well-loved food, once called the “drink of the gods” by the Maya people, has a rich history as well. Chocolate comes from the seeds of the cacao pod, which grows on the cacao tree. Theobroma cacao is native to the tropical rainforests of Central America, where it has grown for thousands of years.
