Did you know that too the Aztecs,  chocolate was the starting place of spiritual wisdom, incredible energy, and superior sexual powers? The drink was highly prized as a nuptial aid, and unsurprisingly, was the most favored beverage at wedding ceremonies. The Emperor Montezuma was presumed to drink fifty (50) flagons of chocolate per day, always stimulating himself with a cup just before he entered his harem.
Although, chocolate was drunk on a daily basis, it was still considered an exotic luxury and consumed mainly by kings, noblemen and the upper ranks in the priesthood. (Some historian argued that priest would not have drunk chocolate, in fact, they said it would have been the equivalent of a priest quaffing Champagne every day.) Because of its energy-boosting properties, chocolate was given to the Aztecs warriors to strengthen them on military campaigns. The chocolate was compressed into travel-size tablets and wafers this was considered an incentive to the warriors. In fact, a law was passed stating that if a warrior was not going to war he was forbidden to consume chocolate or any luxury meats or drink and it did not matter if he was a royal prince or nobleman.
The Spanish too became infatuated by the chocolate mystique, once they become accustomed to the strange drink, they enjoyed it with much gusto.
