Eat Me: A Brief Look at the Long History of Women and Chocolate
"Decadent. Seductive. Sinful." When it comes to chocolate, sex sells. And it specifically sells to women. Even though research shows that men and women consume roughly the same amount of chocolate, advertisements are mainly targeted at women, encouraging them to "indulge" their cravings and deepest desires.
While this may seem like a new phenomenon, the association between chocolate and female sexuality predates the modern ad campaign. In fact, some scholars trace it all the way back to the Mesoamerican civilizations that first cultivated Theobroma cacao. Liz Goad takes a quick jog through chocolate’s long, tawdry history to find out where this theme originated and how it has evolved over the centuries.
