Chocolate
The history of chocolate begins in Mesoamerica: Native Americans who first cultivated cacao plants found chocolate to be an invigorating drink, mood enhancer and aphrodisiac, which led them to believe that it possessed mystical and spiritual qualities. The Mayans worshipped a god of cacao and reserved chocolate for rulers, warriors, priests and nobles at sacred ceremonies. Christopher Columbus was the first European to try the cocoa in 1502 when, during his fourth voyage in America arrived at Gunaja Island. Hence the cocoa reached Europe around the middle of the sixteenth century: it was imported by the Spanish conquerors, and it was during their dominion in Sicily that cocoa was introduced in Modica". Since then the creativity of master chocolatiers from all over Italy exploded. The chocolate was one of the most fashionable drinks in "coffee shops" of the eighteenth century Venice. Thus in the eighteenth century, in Turin, the first chocolate was invented by Doret. Also in Turin in 1852 chocolatiers invented Gianduiotto, chocolate made with cocoa and chopped and toasted hazelnuts. In Perugia was created the Bacio Perugina, born from the passion of Luisa Spagnoli, wife of one of the founders of Perugina: she used to write short messages of love wrapped around the chocolates for her lover. In 1946 a chocolate and hazelnut cream, invented by Pietro Ferrero, was sold to some confectioners of Alba. This chocolate conquered immediately people and was later sold as Nutella
