National Hot Chocolate Day Facts

  • It is believed that the first chocolate drinks were created by the Mayans 2000 years ago. The modern version that we consume today wasn’t created until Irish physician Hans Sloane added milk to cocoa in the late 1700s, thus creating a sweeter drink.
  • Hot cocoa is lower in fat than hot chocolate. This is due to the difference in ingredients. Hot chocolate is made from bar chocolate that already contains cocoa, sugar, and cocoa butter. Meanwhile, hot cocoa comes from a powder that is made by removing cocoa butter from cocoa beans. Despite these differences both drinks still contain antioxidants.
  • The largest cup of hot chocolate according to Guinness World Records contained 1272.3 gallons. It was achieved by the Municipality de Uruapan, Mexico in 2018.
