Did you know that the word "chocolate"is derived from the Spanish word "chocolate", deriving in turn from the Classical Nahuatlword"xocolātl"?Nahuatl was the language spoken by the Aztec civilization in Mexico.In the book True History of Chocolate, authors Sophie and Michael Coe make a case that the earliest linguistic evidence of chocolate consumption stretches back three or even four millennia, to pre-Columbian cultures of Mesoamerica such as the Olmec. If you have the opportunity to travel to Tabasco, Mexico, make sure to include a tour to the Haciendas Cacaoteras in Comalcalco where you can learn the ancestral tradition of the home-made chocolate.
