Long part of American life, chocolate first arrived in North America in 1641, when crates loaded on a Spanish ship sailed to St. Augustine, Florida. In colonial America, chocolate was exclusively a drink and was affordable to all classes of people, offered at most coffee houses. A food item that could be transported in solid blocks without spoiling, it became a military ration, helping to maintain soldiers’ energy. By the late 19th century, improved methods of processing chocolate changed it from a gritty product into a smooth, melt-on-the-tongue luxury with a pleasing aroma. Thus began the transformation of chocolate from a drink into a confection. By the 1920s, eating chocolate had surpassed drinking chocolate in popularity.
