The tradition of Valentine’s chocolate has been around for a long time. In the 17th century, cacao beans were first brought to Europe from Mexico and Central America. Europeans associated chocolate with stories about the Aztec ruler, Montezuma, and his many wives, and consider it to be an aphrodisiac.
In 1861, Cadbury was the first chocolatier to offer chocolates in a heart-shaped box.
Wishing you a very SWEET Valentine’s Day!
