The chocolate is a luxury product containing cocoa, originally from South America and was drunk there by the Mayans as Xocolatl, that is cocoa with water and chillies.

Legend has it that the god-king Quetzalcoatl rewarded the loyalty of the princess who died for her husband's treasure by bringing them cocoa trees.

The industrial production process for chocolate is technically demanding. It is therefore difficult to produce high-quality chocolate privately. In addition to cocoa and cocoa butter, the main ingredients used are sugar and milk powder as well as spices such as vanilla.

Chocolate is an important ingredient in many desserts.
