Dark Chocolate Fun Facts

Dark Chocolate History

Dark chocolate is more than just the coating of our delicious Dark Chocolate Mallo Cups, but is actually a powerhouse of flavor and healthy antioxidants. How much about dark chocolate do you really? Here are some fun dark chocolate facts:

  • Dark chocolate is made from the roasted beans of the cacao tree.
  • Dark chocolate is chock full of flavonoids and antioxidants which can positively impact your health. Studies have shown that these flavonoids and antixodants can lower LDL cholesterol, as well as reduce inflammation.
  • Eating dark chocolate can actually lower insulin resistance, a major driver behind diabetes.
  • The Aztecs and Mayans used dark chocolate as currency. Boyer is kind of still keeping this traditional alive, as our Play Money is found in every pack of Dark Chocolate Mallo Cups.
  • It’s been said that the Aztec rulers drank up to ten cups of hot dark chocolate per day. We think 10 Dark Chocolate Mallo Cups would have been more satisfying though.
  • Dark chocolate is a stress reducer.
