The Story of Chocolate
Initially consumed as a fashionable beverage by members of high society, ‘chocolate houses’ were soon born. Considered sinful places -haunts of gambling, gossip, and intrigue –they were frequented by aristocrats, writers and bon viveurs, and depicted in the poetry of Alexander Pope and his contemporaries. By 1760, The East India Company had to pay two shillings in tax per pound of cocoa imported, the equivalent to one day’s wages, for these beguiling cargoes of cocoa from far off lands.
