Did you know that chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac?

The Aztec emperor Montezuma drank ground cocoa beans to increase his sexual prowess. In Mesoamerican marriage ceremonies, the couple shared a ritual cup of cocoa, which was believed to increase their luck in love.

Did you know that chocolate has been sold commercially since at least the late 1600s?

That’s when chocolate emporiums began opening across Europe, serving up cocoa baked into cakes and eventually into candies. Then in the 1800s, famous British chocolatier Richard Cadbury upped the ante by selling chocolates in a heart-shaped box, giving birth to a Valentine’s Day cliché!

February 14th is Valentines Day – a worldwide celebration of love and romance, marked by giving red roses and chocolate hearts or by sending valentines. Join us as we present a new “Did You Know?” fun fact each day as we countdown to Valentine’s Day, the day of love!
