Chocolate, a True French Love Affair !
With 12 kilos eaten every second, the love affair between chocolate and French people is a serious matter, worth more than a mere gallic shrug ! Four hundred years after being introduced in France (Bayonne,1615), the French now eat 405,000 tons of chocolate annually.
But, as chocolate became widespread at the Court of Versailles under the tutelage of Louis XIV and his spouse Marie-Thérèse d’Autriche, only the Royal had access to this unique beverage. Today, the French cannot not resist offering or eating chocolate for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter or even Mother’s Day.
