Cacao, or Theobroma Cacao, is also known as cocoa beans, cocoa, cacao nibs, or cocoa pods.
As a sign of chocolate's reputation, when the Swedish naturalist Linnaeus was officially naming all the plants of the world in 1753, he called the cacao tree Theobroma cacao which means "Food of the Gods." Mexicans named the pounded seeds 'Chocolate.'
