Some of the most valuable brands in commerce have secured the loyalty of their customers by exploiting a commodity first popular with the ancient cultures of Mesoamerica. Archaeological evidence from various sites across Central and South America reveals that regional cultures were using cocoa for making beverages as early as 1900 BC.
