It’s burning up in HOTlanta this year! Being out in the sun makes us crave one thing…. ICE CREAM!

The Science of Chocolate

The Science of Chocolate

What is Chocolate?

Chocolate is a solid mixture. In its basic form it is composed of cacao powder, cocoa butter, and some type of sweetener such as sugar; however, modern chocolate includes milk solids, any added flavors, modifiers, and preservatives.

Cacao is the plant matter which lends the unique tast and bitterness to chocolate. The chocolate mixture is made of aggregations of micro particles of cacao and sugar, and globules of cocoa butter fat milk solids.

The word "chocolate" comes from the Nahuatl word Xocolatl for "bitter water", referring to its original incarnation as a hot, spiced beverage in the Mayan and Aztec traditions.

A Blend of International Inspiration: Spice Market- Atlanta W Hotel in Midtown

**Note: Spice Market has been replaced with a new restaurant called TRACE since Fall 2014.


Spice Market is a hidden gem within Midtown. Unless you frequent the W Hotel or visit Atlanta and stay at the hotel as a guest, Spice Market isn't usually on your radar for places to eat in Midtown Atlanta... however, it should be!
