Chocolate Trivia

Interesting Facts

  • The botanical name of the chocolate plant is 'Theobroma Cacao', which means 'FOOD OF THE GODS'

  • The word 'Chocolate' comes from the Aztec word "xocolatl", which means "bitter water".

  • Champagne and sparkling wines do not pair well with milk or dark chocolate because of their acidity, which reacts with chocolate, causing a tart taste to occur. Instead, try white chocolate with champagne and dark chocolate with red wines.

  • Chocolate is not high in cholesterol. The cocoa butter in chocolate contains stearic acid, which has a neutral effect on cholesterol levels and is not recognised as a source of trans fat.

  • British people are second only to the Swiss when it comes to chocolate consumption. The average Brit eats 8.6kg of chocolate per year.

  • Although chocolate is not an aphrodisiac, as the ancient Aztecs believed, chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), a natural substance that is reputed to stimulate the same reaction in the body as falling in love. Hence, heartbreak and loneliness are great excuses for chocolate overindulgence.

  • Chocolate syrup was used for blood in the famous 45 second shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "Psycho" which actually took 7 days to shoot.

  • Chocolate is poisonous to dogs, cats and other domestic pets. The ingredient theobramine over stimulates their cardiac and nervo ussystems, and can cause death.
