AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Bites Now Available in Cracker Barrel Stores + Giveaway!

 

This post was sponsored by American Heritage Chocolate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary product to facilitate my review.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic day! 🙂

If you’ve been visiting Hip Mama’s Place for a while, you’ve seen me talk about AMERICAN HERITAGE® brand of chocolates many times before here, here here, here and here. I have used their chocolate products in many of my recipes and my family enjoys them very well.

You know, when I first posted about this brand of chocolates, many of you expressed that you have not heard of them before and that you’d love to try their products too!

American Heritage Chocolate Bites

Well, great news to you all chocoholics! Today, I’m so excited to share that you can now grab the AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Bites at your local Cracker Barrel® Old Country Store! Yes, friends. If you have a Cracker Barrel store near you (there are 630 stores in 42 states!), you can experience chocolate too the way our ancestors did – while supplies last!

Chocolate History

I love discussing about “chocolate history” so I wanted to share some with you!

The History of Chocolate

  • Did you know that in the 18th century chocolate was enjoyed as a beverage?  It wasn’t until the mid 1880s that chocolate became “candy” as we know it.  
  • In 1502 CE (Common Era),  Christopher Columbus, during his fourth voyage to the New World, is the first European to write about cocoa beans. 
  • In 1682, cocoa beans are being imported in Boston, marking the beginning of chocolate production in the American colonies.  
  • In 1735, Benjamin Franklin is selling chocolate out of his printing shop in Philadelphia.
  • In 1758, George Washington makes his first chocolate order of 20 pounds to serve to guests for breakfast at Mount Vernon (Virginia) and continues to order chocolate until his death in 1799.
  • In 1899, a common North American restaurant menu offers a hamburger steak for $1.50 and coffee, tea or chocolate for 25¢ a cup.
  • In 1981, M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies are included in the first space shuttle mission, as well as every subsequent flight. They are included in NASA’s space food system and are included in the International Space Station menu.

    We don’t have a Cracker Barrel anywhere near us. I’d love to visit one- maybe when I’m on vacation sometime…

    I really need to visit a Cracker Barrel. I absolutely love chocolate, and this looks incredible!

    I really love American Heritage Chocolate. It’s so delicious and we all love the products. I stocked up on these bites at my last trip to Cracker Barrel because I love them in my hot cocoa.

    I am not a big chocolate love. I do love hot chocolate in the winter time though.

Thanks for the chocolate history, I enjoyed reading it. It’s so cool that American Heritage is now available in Cracker Barrel stores! Thanks for the giveaway as well!!!

    i need to try some of this chocolate. I’m definitely interested in the spices they use for it. They sound great!

  13. April 19, 2016 / 9:45 pm

    I had no idea how much history chocolate had! Those were some really interesting facts, too. I’m going to have to remember some of them the next time when I go to eat some chocolate which will probably be sooner rather then later. LOL

    Well I know where I will be visiting in July. I need to try this chocolate. It looks amazingly rich and creamy.

    Crackle Barrel is the perfect place for this chocolate. It’s old-fashioned looking and I bet it taste out of this world. Going to have to stop buying get some.
