AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate, conceived and crafted in 2006 by a dedicated team of historians and Forrest E. Mars, Jr., the legendary advocate of American history and chocolate's unique story in the Americas. AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is the result of painstaking years of research by a multi-disciplinary team of more than 115 experts from around the globe. Using research culled from the archives of some of the country’s most venerated institutions, libraries and private collections, and in consultation with leading food historians, the team passionately developed a chocolate product with a flavor profile drawn directly from the annals of chocolate’s historic past. With its historic pedigree providing an inspiring, versatile way to make, bake, test, explore, play, share and show love, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate offers individuals a culinary partner for making new stories of their own. The mildly spicy and slightly sweet recipe is flavored with a blend of 11 spices and ingredients available during the 18th century that range from the heat of chili peppers, to the warmth of vanilla, to the freshness of orange peel. Used in baking and cooking — from sweet to savory — AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate gives any dish or baked item a richer, fuller taste. Enjoy!
