Originating in the Amazon Basin of South America, chocolate has been a part of the human diet for over 3,500 years. Chocolate excites and delights us today in a variety ways, yet most people do not know that we drank our chocolate as a flavored beverage up until the end of the 19th century.

Join us for an evening with AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate and experience the surprising history, the many flavors, and the rich depths of one of America’s favorite treats.
