A Tribute to Chocolate
The name may have changed over the years, from xocoatl to Chocolatl to chocolate, but its worldwide popularity is undisputed. As early as the Sixth Century, Mayas began using the beans of the native cocoa plant to make chocolate. Since then, chocolate has served a multitude of roles, from currency to aphrodisiac to antioxidant-laden treat. It's even been called "the food of the gods".
What hasn't changed about chocolate is how much people love it. We at 1-800-Bakery have collected a number of great chocolate products we're sure you'll love. We have something for everyone- a selection of chocolate birthday cakes for that special chocolate lover in your life, chocolate Lava cakes that made Oprah Winfrey's Favorite things list, sugar free low carb flourless chocolate cake for those with dietary restrictions who refuse to give up the finer things in life, and so much more.
Who knew that the Marquis de Sade used chocolates to hide poisons, or that Cassanova used a combination of champagne and chocolates to seduce women?
If you're looking for the perfect gift to go along with that cake or box of truffles, try David Lebovitz's "The Great Book of Chocolate". The master baker, a self-professed chocoholic, fills the book with mouth-watering photos and everything you need to know about chocolate, including his favorite recipes.
