The origins of chocolate can be traced back to the ancient Maya and Aztec civilisations in Central America, who first enjoyed 'chocolate' as a much-prized spicy drink made from roasted cocoa beans. Chocolate was exclusively for drinking until the early Victorian era when a technique for making solid 'eating' chocolate was devised.
