If you are not already familiar with AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate, the brand has a unique place in the history of Mars Wrigley Confectionery and in the hearts and minds of people all over America who appreciate an artisanal, authentic approach to making and celebrating chocolate. Conceived of, and crafted by, a dedicated team of historians, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate is the result of painstaking years of research by a multidisciplinary team of more than 115 experts from around the globe. Culled from the archives of some of the most venerated historic institutions, libraries and private collections in America, and in consultation with leaders in food history – from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the passionate team has developed a chocolate product with a flavor profile drawn directly from the annals of chocolate’s historic past. What makes AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate unique is how it taps into the stories of our collective past – from chocolate’s Mesoamerican roots, dating back over 3,500 years, to its place in the lives of European and Colonial American families. AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate also enjoys an ongoing relationship with National Geographic Books. In 2018, they published The Educator’s Guide Great Moments in World History: Global Stories Where Chocolate Sparked Discovery, Innovation, and Imagination! The Guide is a new STEM-based, 14-week curriculum published by National Geographic Books in partnership with Mars Wrigley Confectionery, Food Historians and leading foodways experts from historical sites across North America. As a charitable partner, 2018 marks the year AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate launched its support of First Book, a nonprofit social enterprise focused on equal access to quality education for kids in need. AMERICAN HERITAGE Chocolate partnered with First Book to create special teacher appreciation packages for educators serving children in low income communities across the U.S.
