goodbye/fun facts....national chocolate milk day. while it's one of our favorite childhood beverages in the United States, it actually has Jamaican origins. the  chocolatey drink can be traced back to the 1400s...The Mayans worshipped a god of cocoa...and chocolate drinks were thought to be medicinal and magical throughout history. In 1687, Irish botanist Hans Sloane was appointed as a physician to the Duke of Albemarle in Jamaica. While in Jamaica, Sloane was introduced to Jamaican chocolate water. He found the drinks to be too bitter and added milk for taste. Because of his position, Sloane was allowed to bring the drink mixture back to Europe. He began preaching of the medicinal benefits and selling it to apothecaries.
