Our featured chocolate quote was found in the Choco-Story Chocolate Museum in Brugge and comes in three hilarious byte-size pieces from one Madame de Sevigne in 1671. Who she was we do not know, but she clearly had strong opinions about the popular hot drink:
"If you are not well at all or have not slept, chocolate will revive you." Madame de Sevigne, February 11, 1671.
"All who have spoken well of it have lied. Do not support it. It is no longer in fashion." Madame de Sevigne, April 15, 1671
"Take chocolate in order that even the most tiresome company seems acceptable to you." Madame de Sevigne, sometime in 1672
To this we say, "Go figure!"
