FEBRUARY 23 : CHOCOLATE - KANSAS CITY

Happy New Year Kansas City!! We're back and we're ready to bring on 2017 with the Ingredient of Love to make the Food of the Gods - Chocolate!

The Mayans used it to create a ritual beverage that was shared during marriage ceremonies, providing one of the first known links between chocolate and romance. The Latin name for cocoa—Theobroma—literally means, “food of the gods.”

That’s right Fight Clubbers Chocolate is the name of the game and we’re not talking about no Sweet Cupcakes kind of nibbles, we’re talking Food of the Gods kind of a Bite!
