This post brought to you by Greatest Moments in Chocolate History Book & American Heritage Chocolate.
Are you a chocolate lover? Do you know someone who is? Then this blog post is just for YOU. I recently learned about an awesome book filled with recipes and history all about chocolate. It’s the chocolate lovers dream, in a book filled with 208 pages of chocolate facts, beautiful photographs, and it reveals the untold story of the world’s favorite indulgence.
Did you know:
M&Ms were invented for WWII soldiers as the chocolate that wouldn’t melt in their hands?
Or that Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV had their own personal chocolate makers?
And that Thomas Jefferson predicted that chocolate would outstrip coffee as the most popular drink in America?
About American Heritage Chocolate:
AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products—developed from chocolate recipes from the 1750’s—that celebrates chocolate’s important role in the lives of Americans during the 18th century. Made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is an artisanal dark chocolate containing 63% cacao. Mildly spicy, and slightly sweet, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.
AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is Kosher-certified, made without dairy, wheat, peanuts, or tree nuts, and is made in a facility that does not contain peanuts and tree nuts. The products are available in a variety of formats for eating, drinking or baking and come in commemorative packaging featuring a “window of time” emblem reflecting certain eras in chocolate history. AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate can be used in recipes replacing semi-sweet chocolate at a one-to-one ratio.
