The Aztecs and Mayans Used Cacao Beans as Currency

12th Nov 2013


CacaoAncients believed chocolate was the food of the gods. Aztec and Mayan kings drank cups of warm chocolate on a regular basis, and the magical cacao bean, so valued in pre-Columbian America, was used as a form of currency.

Rather than walk around with coins in their pockets, or loincloths, or whatever, folks would swap cacao beans for goods and services.
