Americans do know how to make beer. They just don't know how to make that over-fermented sewer backwash that others "call" beer.

Yeh, ah said it. Bring it...


But on a serious note, though, Americans tend to prefer their chocolate very sweet and creamy, while Europeans (mostly Brits, it seems) not so much, IMO. While neither Americans or Europeans can claim to have invented chocolate, I do think the process to create milk chocolate was an American invention, so it's not too surprising that American tastes differ from their European counterparts.

Wasn't it the Aztecs or Myans who first made a rudimentary chocolate?

Yep. For most of its history, chocolate was known more as a slightly bitter drink rather than a sweet candy.
