In those days, chocolate was highly valued and used in many ceremonies and celebrations. It would have tasted bitter and sometimes sweetened with honey, or spiced with chilli peppers.

Today’s celebrations of bittersweet chocolate fall somewhere in the middle between the old bitter chocolate drink and milk chocolate that is so popular all over the globe.
