Chocolate Extract Drinks - Chocolate is produced from beans grown on the South American tree (Theobroma cacao). The trees bear fruit after five years of growth. This fruit is similar in size and shape to a rugby ball. Depending upon cocoa type, this fruit can be yellow, orange-like or brown. Inside this fruit the cocoa beans can be found, usually 30-40 in each fruit. With these is a sticky, sweet substance called a pulp. This is used to bring about the characteristic colour and taste to the beans.
