The Chocolate Tree: A Mayan Folktale


Ever wonder where chocolate came from? We have the Mayan king Kukulkn to thank. Kukulkn is more than a king—he is also a god. One day he brings his people an amazing gift: a chocolate tree! But there is just one problem. Kukulkn’s brother, Night Jaguar, doesn’t want regular people to have chocolate. He thinks only gods should eat the tempting treat. Will Night Jaguar prevail? Or will the Mayans get to keep their chocolate tree?
