What better way to prepare for the upcoming Valentine’s Day, something synonymous with chocolates for centuries.
According to Majesticgardens.com, the Aztec were the first to believe chocolate had love inducing properties. Casanova, said to be the “world’s greatest lover” was said to drink chocolate daily. Science reportedly agrees that chemicals released by chocolate increase excitement and energy – in a positive way. This science is reflected in the number of chocolates sold in stores on Valentine’s Day – and supposedly in the chocolates supplied by merchants in downtown Monroe.
