Chocolate.

Chock-O-Lot.

And thanks a lot to the Mayans and Aztecs.

Muchas gracias.

For chocolate.

2,000 years old.

An ancient elixir.

Made as a hot beverage with chili.

Cured everything.

Still might.

Christopher Columbus took cocoa beans back to Spain.

But Spanish friars actually introduced it to Europe.

There they added milk and sugar.

And used vanilla, another Mexican spice, instead of chili.

Chocolate, in whatever form, cures the blues.

Hot chocolate.

Cold chocolate milk.

Chocolate cake.

Chocolate ice cream.

Brownies.

Fudge.

S’mores.

Molè sauce.

Chocolate frosting.

Chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate-covered nuts.

A box of chocolates.

It brightens the day.

Brings cheer.

Sweets for the sweet.

Yep, always time for chocolate.

Especially Cocoa Luna chocolate.

Delectable handmade jewels.

They even look like little gems.

And taste divine.

If you don’t like chocolate, try one.

You’re in for a treat.

If you do like chocolate, well…

You’re in luck.

And in trouble.

Located on the north side of the square.

Next to Sam’s Antiques.

How sweeeeeeeeet it is.

That’s Mason.
