The word "chocolate" comes from the
Aztecs of Mexico, and is derived from the Nahuatl word xocolat which is
a combination of the words, xocolli, meaning "bitter", and
atl, which is "water". Chocolate was discovered by Mayans of
the Yucatán Peninsula, in México about 2,600 years ago or so, as
evidence found in ruins suggest.
