Quebec - Chocolate Museum

The last place we visited in our Food Tour was Erico - the Chocolate Museum. It was a small place with of course lots of chocolates. I would have wanted to taste their hot choco but there was too much to see in this cute place.

Made of chocolate.

This clock was made of chocolate too.

"Chocolate" is the phonetic transcription of the Mayan word "xocoatl" pronounced "shock-ohwattel". And in the olden times they also used a whisk to whip up the chocolate beverage.

An assortment of chocolate cans.

Postage stamps showing activities related to cacao production.

Chocolate pots in the olden times.
