"Not many people are aware chocolate started out in drink form," adds Jan, who also has descriptive panels charting the progress of chocolate through the ages, starting with the Aztecs. "It was not until the late 19th century that it was developed into the bars we know, which, in chocolate terms, is extremely young," he remarks.
