Our Passion for Chocolate

Nothing compares to the pleasure of chocolate. It is no wonder that the Latin name for the cacao tree, Theobroma cacao, means "food of the gods." Chocolate, when made to perfection, is a taste to savor and an experience to remember! The Swiss are masters of such perfection and we, at Before Chocolate, are extremely passionate about chocolate. Their superiority and meticulousness combined with our passion is reflected in all our products. Rest assured, that our chocolate selection will take you on an unparalleled journey of flavor and pleasure worthy of the gods.

History Of Chocolate

The Smithsonian's article "A Brief History of Chocolate” writes: Many modern historians have estimated that chocolate has been around for about 2000 years from the time of the Aztecs and Mayans, but recent research suggests that it may even be older and stretches back three or four millennia, to the cultures of Mesoamerica such as the Olmec.

It is believed that the origin of the word "chocolate” came from the Aztec word "xocoatl," which referred to a bitter drink brewed from cacao beans. Legend has it that the Aztec king Montezuma welcomed the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes with a banquet that included drinking chocolate. The chocolate was not to the liking of the Spanish taste buds, but once mixed with honey or cane sugar, it became popular. By the 17th century, chocolate was a fashionable drink throughout Europe. Today's modern chocolate evolved thereafter.

Benefits Of Chocolate

Long gone are the days when indulging in chocolate would cause undue feelings of guilt. Chocolate comes from the cacao plant, and cacao is extraordinarily rich in a certain form of the antioxidant Flavonid.

More research needs to be done, but recent studies suggest four possible health benefits of cocoa and dark chocolate: a healthier heart and lower blood pressure, an increased Insulin sensitivity, an improved arterial blood flow, and relief of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

To us, the greatest benefit of chocolate is how it magically elevates your mood and reduces tension. One simple taste and your present becomes a distant thought. Next time you reach for that piece of chocolate, don’t stress!
