Check this out! I just got this info from Michael Ruggeri
“Ancient bowls found at a Utah village, “Site 13,” near Canyonlands National Park in Utah have traces of chocolate. The bowls are 1,200 years old. This is the earliest trace of chocolate ever found in North America so far. The study was done by a husband/wife team from the Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Bristol Myers in Princeton. They had previously found chocolate traces at Chaco Canyon and other sites dated to the 11th century. The bowls from Site 13 date to 770 CE. Some skeptics are responding that if there was such a large chocolate trade extending from Mesoamerica to New Mexico to Utah, that there would be some pictorial or post contact written tales proof of this trade in those areas. So the argument is centered around the extent of this trade.”
