Take the Chocolate Quiz! Did You Know Doctors Once Prescribed Chocolate for Broken Hearts?

Chocolates in the chocolate quizChocolateshow?id=3LLKh9at9C8&bids=234321 has a long reputation as an aphrodisiac. This is the sort of material I ran across as I was doing research for The Chocolatier, one of my 1950s historical novels. Ready to take a chocolate quiz to test your knowledge? Imagine…WebMD reports that “Aztec ruler Montezuma supposedly drank a chocolate-y concoction before visiting the women in his harem…And French doctors supposedly used it to treat broken hearts.” 

Check Your Choc-o-holic IQ with the Chocolate Quiz

Can't resist this oh-so-chocolately quiz? Well, who could? Take the chocolate quiz from WebMD, then come back to share your score!

Here are some tidbits I found fascinating, courtesy of WebMD:

  • Dark chocolate does have more caffeine than milk chocolate. Even then, it would take four bars to give you the same buzz as one cup of regular Joe.
  • Want to give your brownies or other chocolate baked goods a little extra chocolate-y goodness? Try adding a bit of instant espresso powder — a teaspoon or less — in your next recipe. Espresso powder can ramp up the chocolate taste in cakes, brownies, and cookies without adding coffee flavor or many calories.
