Italian researchers found that women who ate chocolate on a daily basis had higher libidos than those who didn’t. They also found that chocolate-fed women had better sexual arousal and more sexual satisfaction. Their scientific conclusion: The craving of choice for many women has some real benefits for our sex lives.

While science is just catching up, the Mayans and the Aztecs knew this as far back as 600 A.D. They believed that cocoa was the food of the gods, which they ground into a paste and consumed as a rich, frothy beverage. (Hot chocolate, anyone?) Cocoa was among the most expensive of foods. The liquid chocolate was considered so sacred it was reserved for nobility and religious ceremonies only.
