Cocoa Loco

Mmmmm. Chocolate.

Whether you indulge in white, milk, or dark, every person knows the pure joy of this decadent substance. No wonder the stuff has been used in ritual and worship since humans first discovered it centuries ago.

You can learn all about humanity's love affair with chocolate at the Heard Museum's Movie Mondays feature, Chocolate: Pathways to the Gods. The film explores the obsession and ritual associated with the sweet stuff throughout the past 3,000 years, ranging from Mesoamerica to European royalty.
