Valentine's Day chocolate - a traditional sweet treat!
Even though it is quite common to give chocolates on Valentine's day, this celebration goes back a long way and was not necessarily always celebrated with chocolate. For several centuries, it was customary to send letters or romantic notes to show your love for someone. These small notes then began to take the form of cards which were accompanied by boxes of chocolates.
Although chocolate is something we gift on several occasions throughout the year, it has a very strong symbolic value when it comes to celebrating love. The Aztecs saw chocolate as having aphrodisiac properties and the molecule in chocolate was even called "the molecule of love". The tradition of writing someone a loving note on Valentine's Day combined with the symbolism of chocolate naturally gave rise to the famous Valentine's Day chocolates. At the very end of the 19th century, an English chocolatier had the idea of presenting chocolates in a heart-shaped box! It was customary for the box to also be used to collect the romantic words exchanged by lovers.
