In 2003, Mars Incorporated undertook an extensive global research initiative to uncover the true
history of chocolate. A group from Mars led a multi-disciplinary team of more than 115 experts
from around the globe who accessed over 200 archives, libraries, museums, and private
collections to reveal chocolate’s origin and history in the Americas. CHOCOLATE: History,
Culture, and Heritage has contributions from 45 authors, including researchers, culinary chefs,
food scientists, and historians from leading historic institutions and was published in 2009 by
Wiley. Out of this research project, the AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate brand was developed in 2006 by Mars Chocolate North America to help educate consumers about the history of our
nation through the engaging story of one of our most beloved foods...chocolate! Fashioned off
an ingredient list from 1750, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is an authentic historic
chocolate made from ingredients available in the 18th century. The recipe represents a true
taste of chocolate the way our ancestors would have enjoyed it. The product line celebrates
chocolate’s important role in the lives of Americans during the 18th century. Made with all-
natural ingredients and no preservatives, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate comes in four
unique formats: chocolate sticks, chocolate bites, chocolate baking/grating blocks, and finely
grated chocolate drink mix. AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is sold exclusively at over 200
fine gift shops at historic sites, museums, and historic inns across the USA and Canada.
