February is the month of Valentine's Day.
And when I think of Valentine's, I think of chocolate!
Did you know that cocoa was first discovered in South America as a spicy drink?
The Spanish explorer, Cortez, didn't like it spicy so he added sugar and made the drink sweet and brought the recipe back to Europe.
It was in 1847 when chocolate was first intoduced in a "bar" form.
Did you know that Japanese people eat an average of 2 kg of chocolate a year?
But, German and Swiss people eat an average of aomost 11 kg a year per person!
