  1. Ah, chocolate has a fascinating history! You see, chocolate gets its name from the Aztec word “xocolātl,” which means “bitter water.” The Aztecs, who lived in ancient Mexico, were among the first people to cultivate cacao beans, the main ingredient in chocolate. When Spanish explorers like Hernán Cortés encountered this bitter beverage in the 16th century, they brought it back to Europe. Over time, people started adding sugar and milk to make it taste sweeter, turning it into the delicious treat we know today. So, it was the Aztecs who originally named it, and we’ve been enjoying chocolate in various forms ever since!
