In the begining, the chocolate had been consumed only as a beverage. Production of chocolate in Europe has increased rapidly in the 18th century. The first chocolate factory was founded in Holland in 1815. The first chocolate in solid form was made in Bristol, England in 1847and it was made of combination of cocoa powder, sugar and cocoa butter.
