Legend Has It
Cocao was a gift that the god Quetzalcoatl made for men. The rulers and elite warriors of ancient Mesoamerica consumed cocoa in a variety of ways, using it as food, drink, medicine, and even as the official currency. The scientific name of the cacao tree is Theobroma cacao, whose Latin meaning is "food of the gods."
