Tea comes from the leaves of tea trees also known as Camellia sinensis and was initially used for medicinal purposes. Theophylline helps to open up the airways and is helpful for treating asthma and other breathing disorders. The theophylline is extracted and put into medications to treat these disorders. Chocolate, which contains the xanthine known as theobromine comes from the cacao bean and is said to have originated in Mexico and was discovered by the Aztecs and the Mayans. Chocolate contains less caffeine than tea or coffee, but nonetheless still contains caffeine .
History of Candy Bars For a while, the Maya and the Aztecs were the only ones enjoying the fruit of the cacao tree, something they had done for thousands of years. In the 16th Century, Spanish explorer Hernan Cortez paid a visit to the Aztecs and when he met their leader, Montezuma, he got a taste of the spicy, chocolate drink that was a local treasure. [pic] Cortez returned to Spain with the recipe (we like to imagine it scribbled on a Post-it note) and a stash of cacao beans and the chocolate drink quickly became a favorite delicacy in the aristocratic circle. For a while, the rich Europeans had all the fun, but over the next couple of centuries, cacoa and sugar became widely traded in Europe and North America, filling the growing demand for the chocolate drink among all the classes. In 1847, Englishman Joseph Fry figured out a way to create a chocolate paste to press into a mold, thus creating the candy bar.

The socially constructed meaning of chocolate have change over the centuries. Mayans worshipped cocoa beans as an idol and believed in the religious value of it. In the 1800's, because of radical diversity, Mayans and Aztecs elected to believe on the currency value of the cocoa beans. An then Spanish explorer Don Cortes was introduced to cocoa drink and he was impressed on the thought that he could make money out of cocoa beans and so he established a cocoa plantation. And then later on Mayans, Europeans and Hollands experimented on the medicinal values of the cocoa bean.
Sugar is a very tempting and delightful sweetener to foods used every day, all over the world to satisfy our appetites. One year after Christopher Columbus’s first voyage in 1493, Columbus introduced cane sugar to the islands of the Caribbean. During this time sugar was not known to most people in Europe. That changed soon enough and caused the production of sugar to become a large industry. The sugar trade was driven by land and climate, consumer demand, and the economy.
Bargaining Power of Suppliers In production of premium chocolate the primary raw material is cocoa bean, secondary sugar, and milk. The suppliers of the chocolate industry have moderate bargaining power over the industry because of the limited suppliers. In addition the supplier groups bargaining power increases if there are no substitute products. Because the cocoa bean is a required ingredient in chocolate the suppliers do not have any substitute products for which they must compete. This lack of substitutes increases the bargaining power of the chocolate industry 2.
Why not to expand the line? The best compliment for a chocolate bar is a cup of bitter espresso. That is why we have suggested expanding into the production of coffee beans or freshly made coffee (tea). We have stated the research question as ‘’Is the expansion of Emils Gustavs to production of coffee (tea) potentially beneficial?’’. To answer that question we have constructed a survey.
Pepsi was born after Coca Cola, or Coke. It began in North Carolina, invented by a pharmacist named Caleb Bradham. It came out for public use on August 28, 1898. It had the reputation for being a food drink; Caleb Bradham was a pharmacist and he claimed that his concoction aided digestion. This claim, in a way, was already a marketing strategy, because during those times, people were always buying medicinal aids for digestion.
