Celebrating World Chocolate Day with Applegate Properties: Supporting Local Delights

Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2024

World Chocolate Day, observed annually on July 7th, is a global celebration dedicated to one of the most beloved treats worldwide: chocolate. This day is recognized internationally as an opportunity for chocolate lovers to indulge in their favourite confections and celebrate the rich history and cultural significance of chocolate.

The story of chocolate begins over 3,000 years ago in the ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica, where the cacao tree was first cultivated. The Mayans and Aztecs prized the cacao bean so highly that they used it as currency and as a basis for a ritual beverage. When Spaniards brought cacao back to Europe in the 16th century, it was initially consumed as a drink. However, with the Industrial Revolution and the invention of processes to mass-produce solid chocolate, it transformed into the popular food item we know today.
