Why Valentine’s Day Chocolates? How Did the Tradition Begin?
There are two primary presents associated with Valentine’s Day: flowers and, more importantly, chocolates. But why? How did this tradition begin? Well, according to some historians you can thank the Aztecs, who once referred to chocolate as the “food of the gods.” Then, when Christopher Columbus discovered America, he liked chocolate so much that he brought it back with him to Spain. This new delicacy quickly made its way throughout European aristocracy, before making its way to the masses.
However, it was not until 1861 that Richard Cadbury created the first ever heart-shaped box for Valentine’s Day, forever linking everyone’s favorite romantic holiday with everyone’s favorite tasty treat. The rest, as they say, is history.
