Maya Chocolate Workshop

Just like the Maya women thousands of years ago, the local Maya women still use chocolate to cast magic spells that make them sexually irresistible – so they can catch their man, the object of their desire.

Cacao beans were used as currency the ancient Maya. Couple thousand years ago, a thousand Maya cacao beans would buy you a slave – a hundred Maya chocolate beans would buy you a turkey – ten Maya cacao beans would buy you a rabbit.

Cacao, the bean used to make chocolate, was a key element in all aspects of Maya culture. Cacao was one of the main trading products they exchanged with other cultures that extended thousands of miles north into North America and thousands of mile south into South America.
