Chocolate and mint is a famous partnership in the world of food, like wine and cheese, burgers and fries. To create a delicious, lip-smacking treat, we bring that popular flavor combination here, blended with green tea leaves. Fresh and cool, with a smooth, sweet minty flavor and whisps of chocolate. Just like a stick of zesty peppermint bark chocolate. Bon appetit!
The story of chocolate begins with Columbus' discovery of America. Cocoa beans were among the curiosities he brought back from his voyage. However, it wasn't until the conquest of Mexico that the Spaniards learned of 'chocolatl,' a drink made from cocoa beans that the Aztecs served Cortez and his troops.
The Spaniards found the drink bitter, and began adding other ingredients to sweeten its taste. Cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg were all tried. Once the leaves of mint were added, a true classic was born.
