Chocolate symbol of love

Chocolate has been considered a symbol of love and romance for hundreds of years. Chocolate is a popular valentine’s gift.

The custom of giving chocolate dates back to the nineteenth century when chocolate was an expensive gift. Cadbury marketed the first box of chocolate late in 1868, packed in a box decorated in a sentimental Victorian style.
Some cultures believed that chocolate has a magical value. For example, the Aztecs believed chocolate had the power to make a person fall in love.

Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, an endorphin that provides energy and creates feelings of joy, happiness and euphoria.

Phenylethylamine is a mild mood elevator and it creates a pleasurable effect. It’s the same chemical that human brain produces when they feel happy or ‘in love.’
