Note to :Astrikos 

Day One:  Chocolate

Chocolate is really amazing, no?
It's so sweet and kind, and was considered sacred in the ancient times. You can do so much with chocolate! This is one of the main reasons chocolate is so popular.

A brief history on chocolate:
Developed by the The Olmecs, the Mayans, and the Aztecs over 2,500 years ago.
Made with Cacao beans.

Name sake: Which means "god bean" and chocolate meaning 'bitter water'.

'Cocao' got messed up when it hit the European nations, and the name was changed to cocoa. But it still is the cocao bean..
Why is chocolate addicting? It releases serotonin, a chemical that triggers the feeling of well being. It has an anti depressant effect on some people.

A gift of chocolate can be a sweet way to tell someone how much you love them!
