Seven Things You Don’t Know About Chocolate

You may know some of these, but, do you know all of these sweet treats. Can we call them tricks of the trade?

M&Ms The Snack For NASA Astronauts
First packed on the space shuttle in 1981, M&M's have now flown in space more than 130 times. NASA, which does not endorse commercial products, calls them "candy coated chocolates." M&M's have shown an ability to stay in one piece in very extreme conditions and are a favorite for "acrobatic microgravity dining feats," NASA says.

Chocolate Makes You Feel Good
The smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves, which triggers relaxation.

Massachusetts State Cookie – Chocolate Chip
Recognizing that the cookie was invented at the Toll House restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts, in 1930, the state designated it as its official cookie in 1997. Massachusetts is one of only three states with official state cookies -- the others being New Mexico and Michigan, whose Michigan Treasure Cookie also contains chocolate chips.

Chocolate Bar That Weighed 6 Tons
In 2011 Thorntons, a Derbyshire, United Kingdom, candy company, created a chocolate bar that weighed more than 12,770 pounds and set a Guinness World Record. It took workers 10 hours to pour liquid chocolate into the mold that measured nearly 13 feet long. Afterward, it was broken into bits and sold to raise money for charity.

The Aztecs Considered Chocolate To Be An Aphrodisiac
Their emperor Montezuma reportedly consumed some 50 cups of xocolatl, a chocolate beverage, every day to help fuel his sexual trysts.

Eating Chocolate Can Be Heart Healthy
Eating dark chocolate every day reduces the risk of heart disease by one-third.

$260 For A Chocolate Bar
In the pantheon of fine chocolates, there are gourmet boxes, handmade bonbons and now: a $260 handcrafted bar that you eat with wooden tongs (no finger contamination). It's from To'ak Chocolate, and it's handcrafted from Ecuadorian cacao beans. It also is the most expensive chocolate in the world, according to To'ak Chocolate co-founder Jerry Toth.
