    How do you think chocolate tasted when the Mayans and Aztecs prepared it? Would you like to drink this kind of chocolate? Why, or why not?
    I Think chocolate tasted very bitter and If they flavored with chili peppers and other spices, the drink tasted very spicy too. I don´t like to drink this kind of chocolate, because I don’t like spicy and bitter.
    Why do you think chocolate remains such a popular food?
    Because now it’s flavored with sugar and it’s very delicious and it’s used for flavored very desserts too.
