<<< In the 16th Century the drinking of chocolate was so spread in   
Peru than
the Spanish ladies of teh colonial aristocracy wrote to the Bishop of  
to ask for a dispense to drink chocolate in Lent.  >>>

Do you remember what answer they got back on this, this time? The  
Church seems to have had a real problem coming up with an answer to  
such things as chocolate, tea and coffee. At some times banning them,  
and at other times applauding them. The Protestants weren't any more
