Divine Cacao

Chocolate is a divine, celestial drink, the sweat of the stars, the vital seed, divine nectar, the drink of the gods, panacea and universal medicine.
Antonio Lavedán, Spanish army surgeon quoting Geronimo Piperni in his book Competing Uses, Abuses, Virtues and Properties of Snuff, Coffee, Tea and Chocolate (1796)

When a light snow covers the ground outside and the down-filled coats, scarves, and mittens are returned to the closet, a cup of hot chocolate is divine; some even say medicinal.
