Amazing Chocolate Fundraising Ideas
Who can resist chocolate? (Hardly anyone.)
A Brief History of Chocolate
Chocolate has been documented to be around since Mesoamerica, and even so far back to the pre-Olmec Peoples. It’s been fermented, roasted and also grounded. The Aztecs believed that cacao seeds were a gift of Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom. Cacao seeds have been used as currency. Initially prepared simply to be a consume, chocolate was served as being a bitter, frothy substance, blended with spices or herbs, wines or even corn puree. It had been considered to have aphrodisiac powers and also to give the consumer energy.
After its introduction during the 16th century, sugar was combined with cacao and became commonly used through the Western world, primary among the prominent classes; and then among the common everyday people. In the 20th century, delicious chocolates were considered commonplace, essential in the main rations of United States troops during warfare.
The Health Benefits of Chocolate
- A nine-year Swedish study of more than 30,000 women concluded that dark chocolate has cardiovascular benefits. The women in the study who ate 1 to 2 servings of dark chocolate each week reduced their risk for heart failure by almost one-third.
- Flavonoids are antioxidant compounds that increase the flexibility of veins and arteries. Interestingly, a bar of chocolate has five times the flavonoids of an apple.
- Another group of Swiss scientists found that when very anxious people ate an ounce and a half of dark chocolate every day for two weeks, their stress hormone levels were significantly reduced.
Now, whether you believe any of these statistics or not, they sure are good marketing points (if nothing else). And, really, who is the say that these highly intelligent people who conducted these studies are wrong? So, with good conscience and moderate conviction, you can invite anyone to buy and not feel bad. After all, are people actually looking for excuses to delve into a delicious chocolate bar anyway? Why not be the one who provides that little bit of happiness?
