This is the best place for you to know more about chocolate. I believe this make you all hungry. I’ll explain below. Please continue to read…..

A little history of chocolate

Only a few people knew about Christoper Colombus. Beside he found America, but he was a Europeans who introduced cocoa to the other European, as we know cocoa is basic ingredient to make chocolate. He introduced this in the last journey to America. But Europeans didn’t accept this directly. Hernando Cortez , a European who came back from Mexico brought cocoa. After Cortez introduce cocoa to others and then cocoa become famous. Unfortunately, not all people love to drink chocolate because of the taste was bitter. After doing several experiment, Cortez find the delicious recipes of chocolate drink. By adding vanilla and cinnamon into hot water, this experiment really works. Chocolate drink became luxurious drinks. Spanish Empire hide secret the making of chocolate drink for almost hundred years.

In the 16th century, chocolate drinks began to be enjoyed in some countries such as French and England. The popularity of chocolate drinks beat the popularity of an existing bar or pub in London. Until Dutch begun to plant the cocoa tree. After this ,cocoa wasn’t became luxurious things because the price really affordable. And all Europeans and Americans could enjoy cocoa. In 1728 in Bristol stands a modern chocolate factory for the first time. In America itself, the existence of chocolate as begun with the chocolate factory in Massachusetts bay Colony in 1765. The Dutch itself also found the chocolate bar and chocolate candy. In 1876, Daniel Peter, as a candy maker from Switzerland tried to make a candy and chocolate bar by adding some milk and sugar. We called this milk chocolate.

You aren’t chocolate lovers if you didn’t know several of Chocolate. I’ll share a little about this below. Please check it out!

  • Baking chocolate: This is kind of bitter chocolate because it didn’t add by sugar. This chocolate can be used to make cake and desert, but we must add some sugar.

Chocolate also have a several story. Most of the stories really sweet like the chocolate taste. Curious, don't forget to keep on reading........

  • Chocolate made by tropical plant, it called cocoa seed. Most of the cocoa tree came from West Africa, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria.
  • To make a chocolate need a lot of works and much effort, like: the workers picking the cocoa from the tree, open the skin and remove seeds. Then dried like coffee, roasted, hulled and milled. From milling process cocoa beans was peeled. This mixture also called chocolate liquor.

The benefit of Chocolate for Healthy

Do not blame the chocolate if you are overweight and you have acne on your face.  Some research has shown that chocolate is actually good for your health, like:

  • Biogenic amines, one of the chemical substance inside chocolate, related with amphetamin which can control mood and reduce depression.
  • Chocolate contain high antioxidant which we can found in the vegetables and fruit (but we can’t change the function of vegetables and fruit with chocolate). This substance helped us to prevent blockage of the arteries. This means that chocolate can reduce the risk of heart disease and protect against cancer.

  • Stearic Acid inside chocolate is a one of fat which can’t increase blood cholesterol levels.
  • Chocolate make you happy. Is it true? Of course, Endorphins in the chocolate make you happy.
  • Chocolate make you longer life. A research found that a person who always consume chocolate one up to three times in a month has a long age than other who doesn’t consume chocolate.  Beside the substance which is good for our health, chocolate has a psychology attraction. For chocolate lovers, eating chocolate is like a gift and this make them happy finally give positive effect for the body. They have new spirit in doing work because of piece of chocolate.

Prasetio, I am totally addicted to chocolate, and now that I know all the benefits of chocolates, I may increase my intake for the day. One slab may now become two slabs. I think the dangers lie in the sugar.... They need tons of sugar to sweeten the bitter cacao. Thanks for a very interesting and yummy article about chocolate. Take care.

If you are a fan of real chocolate, I think you're meant to stockpile it. I'm almost certain that I've recently read that there is something of a commodity crisis around it that is meant to drive its price up considerably. I could be wrong and don't want to start a false rumor - but since I count myself as one of those who is strangely addicted to the stuff I was sufficiently alarmed to know that I've read it in at least one source and it's not simply a false memory or nightmare! Enjoy your chocolate while the Halcyon days of relatively cheap chocolate a still here - and who needs an excuse anyway!

Hi, Sembj. This is your second visit. I am proud you still care with this topic about chocolate. Just think positively.

We may can't stop to eat chocolate. We can eat this wisely. I hope you understand. Personally, I'm not eat chocolate very often. Thank you very much. God bless you...
