Instant Hot Cocoa, Certified Organic - 24 oz.
With a history that dates back to the 1500’s, hot cocoa has come a long way. Over the years, this historic drink has made its mark on civilizations from all over the world. The earliest version was pioneered by the Aztecs, served cold, and much different than the beverage we enjoy today. In its most primitive days, roasted cocoa beans were added to a mixture of wine and crushed chili peppers. During the 18th century, European chocolate houses were becoming extremely popular. It was there that British locals began adding steamed milk to their chocolate, and drinking it as a dessert beverage. Shortly thereafter, cocoa powder was invented by the Dutch, making it easier to prepare the drink. Today, hot cocoa is enjoyed by people young and old, from every walk of life.
