Birthplace of Cocoa
Chocolate may be universally adored, but its story begins in what is now modern-day Mexico. As early as 250 BC, the Mayans and the Aztecs were using cocoa beans to create fermented drinks that were incorporated into religious ceremonies, used as aphrodisiacs, and eventually even part of a rudimentary currency system. European colonists were also taken with the distinct flavors of cocoa and quickly spread the new-found favorite throughout their homelands. zChocolat’s famous line of signature chocolates and gourmet gifts is proud to be part of this ancient heritage. All zChocolate creations feature 100% pure, never blended, cocoa butters, allowing the naturally robust flavors of the cocoa bean to shine through. And with flat-fee worldwide shipping and a steady stream of new creations from zChocolat’s master chocolatier Pascal Caffet, the legacy that began more than two millennia ago in Mexico continues to spread throughout the world today.
Delicacy of the Gods
Long considered a luxury food fit for deity, chocolate remains an integral part of Mexico’s culture. From the savory cocoa flavor of traditional mole sauces to the smooth, slightly spicy, flavor of cinnamon-laced hot cocoas, Mexicans regularly stretch the boundaries of what chocolate can do. Finding regular occasions to mix cocoa with other ingredients such a vanilla, chilies, and a wide range of spices has allowed a rich exploration into the nuances of cocoa flavor. Perhaps this is why Mexicans have also developed an appreciation for fine French chocolates like those produced by zChocolat. Unlike North American chocolate which is often overly sweet and one-noted, French chocolate embraces the slightly bitter, rewardingly complex, flavor of high quality single-origin cocoas. Coupled with other carefully sourced ingredients, the resulting recipes are readily acknowledged as some of the best in the world.
Gourmet Birthday Gifts
While chocolate is a celebrated part of Mexican cuisine at any time of year, birthdays and chocolate are especially intertwined. More so than many other countries, birthdays are considered big business in Mexico.

Cheerful paper-covered piñatas filled with sweets are a frequent sight at children’s parties, and luxury gifts are increasingly common for all ages. With elegant packaging options, including solid wood boxes and an entire line of specialty birthday gifts, zChocolat has something sure to suit any occasion. The ability to add a custom image on the lid, engrave the recipient’s name on box, and include a personalized greeting card make chocolate birthday gifts even more meaningful.
