Hot chocolate is also known as ‘Drinking Chocolate’, ‘Chocolate Tea’, and ‘Chocolate Beverage’. It was introduced to Europe by Christopher Columbus in 1502. In the 18th Century, Swiss chocolate maker Francois-Louis Cailler invented milk chocolate.
History of the drink
The first chocolate drink is thought to have been created by the ancient Mayans around 2,000 years ago. The word ‘chocolate’ comes from the Aztec word ‘xocolatl’, which means ‘bitter water’. Chocolate was originally consumed as a bitter beverage mixed with spices or corn purée. It wasn't until the 16th Century that sugar was added to chocolate, making it the sweet treat we know today.
