Chocolate comes from the cocoa tree, more precisely from its seed. This tree was quite common in the tropical countries of America, such as Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica and Venezuela, the latter being the country that has the tastiest type of cocoa in the world. On September 13 we pay tribute to one of the tastiest delicacies that nature has given, of course we are talking about the International Chocolate Day.
A holiday that emerged in France in 1995, as a tribute to the British writer Roald Dahl, author of the magnificent and delicious story "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
But this date also had the support of the United States, and all by a most creamy coincidence, given that on the same day Milton S. Hershey, the founder and owner of the Hershey Chocolate Company, was also born.
Although today there is no country in the world where chocolate is not eaten, the truth is that during the 19th century, cocoa beans and the processed chocolate itself were considered luxury goods, which is why in many regions it was only consumed thanks to smugglers.
