The Bahamas and the chocolate
The Bahamas archipelago includes more than 700 islands and isles, though only 20 of them are inhabitable throughout the year. The national population barely surpasses 300,000 inhabitants who live in Freeport, Nassau, West End and Coopers Town. The capital, Nassau, is home to two thirds of the entire population and the economy depends on tourism. The pre-Columbian era ended with the arrival of Christopher Colombo on the Bahamas in 1492. He recounted his arrival and first trade with Aztecs who used cocoa beans as barter currency, in his logbook. This is also the first known link of the territory with chocolate. The Aztecs also offered a chocolate drink to the explorer since they were fond of him, a beverage that he found distasteful because it was too bitter.
A closer look on the Graycliff chocolate factory
Therefore, chocolate is an essential part of the history of the Bahamas because of its Aztec past. The archipelago hosts some renowned confectionaries such as the Graycliff chocolate factory located in Nassau that continues the tradition. Visitors can discover the flavor of different regional cocoa beans as well as the importance of fair trade and organic farming. Everybody can enjoy the delicious sweets while visiting creative workshops alongside chocolate artists. Chocolate is even blended with typical ingredients of the Bahamas like mango, lime or coconut.
