When chocolate met religion
Imported from the New World in the 16th century, chocolate was first kept a secret by the Spanish before being finally revealed to other European courts, especially France. In order for the Catholic Church to accept the brewing of chocolate drinks, it was declared that consuming them did not constitute breaking a fast. This was done in 1662 and led to the introduction of chocolate drinks into monasteries, where preparation methods were perfected. Chocolate was also introduced to Vatican City in the 18th century. The proof is found in canonization ceremonies, when the Pope gives officers of the Vatican a package of chocolate. One interesting note, the size of the package varies depending on the officer's rank.
Christmas and Easter, chocolate for everyone
In Catholicism, the holidays of Easter and Christmas are peak periods of consumption in many countries. At Easter, the legend says that bells fly to Rome to be blessed at the Vatican, before leaving loaded with chocolate eggs that they deliver to gardens. In the morning, children hurry to collect and enjoy them. Today, modern marketing has added other chocolate shapes, such as chocolate, chickens, rabbits and fish, to bells and chocolate eggs.
