CHOCOLATL

Aztec hot chocolate drink, much loved by Emperor Moctezuma.

The Aztecs invented hot chocolate as a by-product of beer and Moctezuma, their weak-willed emperor, drank fifty cups of the stuff every single day, even while his kingdom was crumbling around his ears.

However, it was thought such a potent aphrodisiac that Aztec women were banned from ingesting chocolate altogether. Your average 'modern' woman wouldn't accept this, then again, nor would she harvest crops or make weapons or clean out the sweatbaths.

These were all utterly important jobs in Aztec times. It was imperative that they were carried out while the menfolk were off conquering neighbours, laying their lives down for sustenance to the Gods, hunting food and whatnot. The wheels would have come off the Aztec wagon long before the arrival of Cortez with the equal rights for women brigade at the helm!
