Ambrosia is the food of the Heavens. It is what the gods and goddesses feasted upon in Ancient Greece.

However, it is so much more than just a tasty indulgence. According to Greek mythology, Ambrosia was responsible for granting the gods and goddesses immortality. Records show it tasted slightly like honey - although some ancient writers speculate that it is actually eight or nine times sweeter.

One, often overlooked, aspect of ambrosia was that once you started to consume it, you couldn’t stop. The gods and goddesses loved eating it so much, the supply of it often couldn’t be replenished fast enough.

So, savour every bite. Who knows when you’ll get a chance to taste the heavens again.

According to ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia was a food or drink sacred to the gods, which was thought to give longevity or immortality to those who consumed it. The gods were said to favour it due to its honey-like sweetness, delicacy and goodness. It's even believed that Aphrodite used ambrosia (honey and beeswax) to magnify her beauty!

The origins of ambrosia and how it was produced remain a mystery, though doves supposedly delivered it to Mount Olympus every morning.

Today, ambrosia is commonly associated with honey, and it’s easy to see why. Honey is considered a superfood that supports healthy living because of its antioxidant, vitamin and mineral content.

In our modern world, a jar of honey has many uses. Traditionally, it's been used to help with coughs and wounds due to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. And since it's easy to digest, it's a favourite among not only Greek gods but also chefs who use it as a natural sweetener. This delectable ingredient can be added to food and beverages, making them even more delicious.

Taste the food of the gods and view a glimpse of life on Olympus with Eat It Like’s Greek Gods chapter. Based on only five ingredients, our 42% milk chocolate bar contains cacao beans, pure cacao butter, grass-fed milk powder, cane sugar and honey.

The production of each type of chocolate also differs, so how they taste varies. There are milk and dairy fats in milk chocolate, resulting in a creamy texture and a softer brown colour. Meanwhile, white chocolate has a rich, buttery taste paired with a velvety mouthfeel. The lack of cocoa solids in white chocolate gives it its white hue.
