What is American Heritage Chocolate?

American Heritage Chocolate is made by Mars Wrigley Confectionery (they also make M&M’s, Twix, Dove, Snickers and lots of other good stuff.) It took them YEARS to research and create this chocolate. Over 115 experts from around the world put their heads (and taste buds) together to develop it.

Their team consisted of all types of people, including historians who live and breath all things chocolate. They went waaaaaay back to 3500 years ago when chocolate was first invented.

They learned all they could about how our ancestors made chocolate and then grabbed all the best ideas and flavors.  Pretty cool, huh?
