The origin of chocolate go back around 4,000 years ago when the Aztecs honored a cacao god Quetzalcoatl. From the Theobroma tree and the magical cacao pods to the ceremonial beverage that was the drink of the gods, let’s discover how the mythical source of today’s solid chocolate has evolved over several millennia as we enjoy the foods and drinks that bring us all so much joy.

In March of 2022, SOMOS Cultura y Más celebrated and shared with the community a special event focusing on the history of cacao and the origin of chocolate with a live presentation, experience stations and market. Here are a few highlights.
