“Chocolate is the most excellent drink that is yet found”

In the early 1800s, a certain Dr. Hughes in England advised pregnant women to drink cocoa. Chocolate is the most excellent drink that is yet found. It is good alone to make up a breakfast, needing no other food, is beneficial to the body, and may be drunk by people of all ages, and is very good for women with child, since it nourishes the embryo, and prevents fainting fits.
