The word Chocolate basically refers to a variety of raw and processed food items that are made from a seed of tropical cacao tree.

The word Chocolate has originated from Aztecs of Mexico. It is derived from a nahuatl language word xocilatl. This word is a combination of xocolli which means bitter and atl which means water.

Actually the Aztec people associated chocolate with Xochiquetzal who was the goddess of fertility.
