Chocolate was a bitter Maztican beverage made of powdered cocoa.[1]


Chocolate was brewed by mixing cocoa powder with water. It was considered a stimulating tonic that restored the drinker's energies.[1]

Maztican chocolate was available across the Sword Coast.[2] It was particularly enjoyed among the wealthy inhabitants of Calimshan, where it was usually consumed at small shops entirely dedicated to the beverage.[1]

The ethereal curtains that connected the Ethereal plane with the Swamp of Oblivion were the color of chocolate.[3][4]


Chocolate was particularly enjoyed by chacs. It was common for a chac lair to contain large amounts of cocoa, which they used to brew the beverage.[5]


Chocolate was considered by some to be an aphrodisiac.[1]
