Well if you crack one open ,you will find a lot of oval seeds about 1" long . They are covered in a white/milky membane . It looks like cow brains inside one . The kids love the sweet membane ,so do adults .It taste kinda tart and nothing like chocolate . You don't eat the seeds . The seeds need to be fermented for a while ,then roasted and ground into powder . "Waa Laa" you have Chocolate .

This was a guarded secret when the "new world" was discovered and for many years only Kings and Queens and a few priviledge few knew of this wonderful concoction .The Chocolate secret along with a few indians to make the chocolate were bought back to Spain and presented to Queen .

Thats why she is so fat in the painting you see of her today :chef::shifty:!!!Chocoholic!!!!!!

Al, I just got off the phone with the US Dept of Agriculture, and they want to know how you managed to get those fresh fruits through customs last time you came back from Panama. I gave them your direct number so they could contact you shortly.
