Chocolate is a roasted and ground cocoa seed that is made as a liquid, paste, or a block, which can also be used as a flavor-enhancing ingredient in other foods. Early signs of use have been associated with Olmec sites, suggesting consumption of chocolate drinks, dating from the 19th century BC. Most Mesoamericans made chocolate beverages including Maya and Aztec. The English word “chocolate” comes through Spanish, from the classical Nahuatl word xocolātl.
