The Mayans and Aztecs made from the beans of the cacao tree a drink that they called xocoatl. The conquering Spanish returned home with chocolate (cho- co-LAH-tay) in 1528. A royal wedding (in 1615) brought the drink to France, where they called it chocolat (sho- co-LAH). It quickly crossed the Channel, and the English welcomed the chocolate (Stubbes, 1662), jocolatte (Pepys, 1664), jacolatte (Evelyn, 1682), and chockelet (Evelyn again, 1684).  

In fact, it was not until chocolate came to the United States that people began spelling and pronouncing it correctly: Chocolate.
