Chocolate was first derived from the cocoa bean which was discovered in the Amazon rainforest around 4000 B.C. But it was not until 1528 when the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes returned to Spain from Mexico with the cocoa beans, where it was then mixed with sugar and spices to make it into the worldwide delicacy it is today.
There are seven Max Brenner stores throughout Melbourne so finding a cosy place to sip a hot mug of chocolate or latte is easy. There are three main varieties of chocolate to choose from: white, dark, or milky.
A good way to tell the quality of chocolate is if you look on the back of the packet to see if the first ingredient is cocoa. If it is sugar then the chocolate is a candy bar and most of the nutrients are not in the chocolate.
More quality dark chocolate at affordable prices are needed throughout Melbourne.
