    Today, December 13, 2014, is National Cocoa Day.

    The cocoa bean is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of Theobroma cacao,
    from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted.

    The cacao tree is native to the Americas.

    New chemical analyses of residues extracted from pottery excavated at an
    archaeological site at Puerto Escondido in Honduras indicate that it was here
    where cocoa products were first consumed between 1400 and 1500 BC.
