Originally in Aztec cultures, chocolate was only consumed as a savoury style drink. In the 17th and 18th centuries, The East India Company’s ships returned to Europe with the world’s finest cocoa. 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. These beguiling cargoes of cocoa from far off lands gradually evolved to a sweet beverage with the addition of sugar and vanilla.
Today’s Company remains as restless as ever to pioneer new flavour depths and experiences. Rediscover chocolate’s earliest hold on your senses with our seasonal range of Drinking Chocolate Flakes that continues the endeavours of the original pioneers.
