  1. No, Italy did not invent chocolate. The credit goes to the ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica, like the Aztecs and Mayans, who first cultivated and consumed chocolate around 1900 BC. They used cocoa beans to make a bitter beverage. It was the Spanish who brought chocolate to Europe in the 16th century. The sweetened and solid form we know today evolved through innovations in Switzerland and Belgium in the 19th century. My experience in studying historical culinary developments reinforces this knowledge.
