  3. Which London gentleman’s club, established at 4 Chesterfield Street in 1693 by an Italian immigrant, was originally established to sell hot chocolate, a rare and expensive commodity at the time?
     
    White’s – founded by Francisco Bianco (“Francis White”) and originally known as “Mrs White’s Chocolate House”.
  4. What does the Aztec word for chocolate, xocolatl, actually mean?
     
    Although no-one’s entirely sure how the word originated, the most commonly given explanation is that it’s a compound of the Nahuatl-language words xococ (meaning “bitter”) and atl (“water”).
  5. Which country has the highest consumption of chocolate per person – the USA, the UK, Switzerland or Mexico?
     
    It’s Switzerland – widely reckoned to be among the best producers of chocolate, they scoff more than half of what they produce themselves. The UK isn’t far behind, and nor is the USA – but Mexico is some way further down the list.
