Alter Eco Organic Chocolate 90% Cocoa Superdark Blackout Mint is a delicious treat. Chocolate is an extraordinary delicacy that has made an extraordinary journey. The origin of the word 'chocolate' likely comes from the Nahuatl (ancient Aztec) word xocolatl meaning 'bitter water,' as the Aztecs traditionally drank unsweetened chocolate during their royal and religious ceremonies. A native plant of Mexico, Central and South America, cacao is believed to have been introduced to Europe in the 16th century by Cortez, the Spanish conquistador. Two hundred years later in England, John Cadbury created the first modern chocolate bar by adding refined sugar and milk. Today, they return to cacao's countries of origin to create bars that respect native people, endangered ecosystems and modern taste buds.
