National Chocolates Day
The greatest pleasures in life include chocolate, which can bring hope to those who might otherwise be stifled by a dull culinary experience. The western world didn’t discover chocolate until the Spanish discovered it through the Mayan people from Mesoamerica.
It has grown to become a popular treat for all economic and social classes. National Chocolates Day is a celebration of the rich history of this tasty treat, particularly in its most popular form, a variety chocolates.
The Spanish discovered chocolate and kept it for years. They would often make it into a drink and then consume it. English pirates attacked a Spanish ship in 1579 and found it chock full of cocoa beans. They were unfamiliar with this delicious substance and set fire to it believing they had conquered a ship full of sheep droppings. The Spanish were the first to add sugar to the substance after falling in love.
It was consumed the same way as hot chocolate and coffee, all of which made it a popular choice. So when did solid chocolate candies become popular?
The cocoa press was invented in 1829. It produced cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and finally solid chocolate. This invention brought chocolate out of its exclusive domain of the rich and made it available to everyone. It created a new kind of chocolate, and changed the way desserts and sweet treats are made.
The first chocolate bar was created in 1847. Its one-hundred year history as a liquid substance that was only consumed as a liquid ended. Two years later, Cadbury, an English company, came up with the idea of a box of chocolates that they would make available for Valentine’s Day. It was eventually appointed official chocolatier to Queen Victoria’s royal house.
The invention of solid chocolate bars led to the creation of chocolate-covered candies. J.S. created the chocolate cream bar in 1866. Fry & Sons was the first to introduce the chocolate cream bar from J.S.
1875 was the year that milk chocolate was invented. Every innovation since then has been geared towards making chocolate more richer, creamier and more delicious. This is what National Chocolates Day celebrates.
