    Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown, food preparation of
    Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, often flavored.
    It is made in the form of a liquid, paste or in a block or used as a
    flavoring ingredient in other sweet foods.

    Cacao has been cultivated by many cultures for at least 3 millennia
    in Mexico and Central America.

    The earliest evidence of use traces to the Mokaya with evidence of
    chocolate beverages dating back to 1900 BC.

    The word "chocolate" entered the English language from Spanish.
    How the word came into Spanish is less certain. Perhaps the most cited
    explanation is that "chocolate" comes from Nahuatl, the language
    of the Aztecs, from the word chocolātl, which many sources say derived
    from xocolātl, combining xococ, sour or bitter, and ātl, water or drink.

    Do you know any who does NOT like chocolate?
