Archeologists have discovered pottery that suggests that the Mayan civilzations, in what is now Mexico, drank chocolate beverlage 2,600 years ago. They would take beans from the tropical cacao tree, which was native to Central American and use them to make cocoa. The cocoa enjoyed since ancient times in America was unsweetened and seasoned with spicy peppers;hence it was a spicy and bitter-flavored drink. It was first shipped to Europe to be sold in 1585; however, the flavor had to be changed to suit European tastes. The Europeans added sugar instead of spicy peppers, and soon they learned how to mix it with milk and prepare it in solid form. The sweetened chocolate is the kind most commonly eaten around the world today. Besides tasting great, it is rumored to have beneficial health effects, and eating it lifts people's spirits psychologically.

考古學家已經發現馬雅人的文明 ，是在現在墨西哥的東西，在 2,600 年以前喝巧克力 (beverlage好像打錯了因該是beverages)飲料的陶器。 他們來自當地中美洲熱帶的可可子樹的豆子，而且使用它們製造成可可粉。
今天全世界最普遍被吃的是變甜的巧克力。除品嚐之外很棒的，它被謠傳有有益的健康效果，而且吃它會鼓舞人的情緒。Source(s): 自己 找字典翻譯@@"http://tw.dictionary.yahoo.com/
