During the Galactic Civil War, the Mon Calamari eventually joined the Rebel Alliance after the Empire used a Star Destroyer to destroy three floating cities on their watery world. They proved an invaluable asset, primarily due to the Mon Calamari being masters of starship construction and supplying the Alliance with badly needed capital ships, Mon Calamari Cruisers, that could take on the Galactic Empire's ships of the line. Prior to joining the Alliance, the Mon Calamari had only built passenger liners because of their peaceful ethos. Also renowned for their performance art, lithe Mon Calamari water dancers often perform in some of the galaxy's most prestigious venues, including Coruscant Galaxies Opera House, where the ballet "Squid Lake" ran for some time during the waning days of the Republic and was known to be a personal favorite of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The most famous Mon Calamari is Admiral Ackbar, the supreme admiral of the Rebel Alliance's naval forces. Another Rebellion-sympathetic male Mon Calamari named Quarrie, the spacecraft engineer character named for Star Wars visual artist Ralph McQuarrie, was the designer of the B-wing starfighter prototype named the Blade Wing, as seen in the Star Wars Rebels second-season episode Wings of the Master.

Milk, unsweetened, dark, or even blond chocolate is the most well-liked confection around the world. And those who have sweet tooth find hot chocolate the best drink ever. This cocoa product has gained popularity due to its rich flavor, creamy consistency, and anti-stress effect.
Chocolate was consumed as bitter beverage, not as solid bar, for 90% of its history. Mayans and Aztecs were the fist who brewed this bitter drink from cacao beans. Ancient Maya regularly grew cacao trees and Aztecs got it later. They called chocolate “Xocolatl” that means “bitter water”.
So chocolate was unknown thing until Europeans discovered America and tasted food of native cuisine. At first the drink was very bitter and foreigners didn’t like it, so they add sugar or honey to the beverage.
In the 1600s chocolate was popular drink across Europe because it was believed to have health-giving property. At that time it cost too high and was served only to elite class. But in the beginning of the 18th century price for chocolate became affordable and the drink turned out to be wide-spread.
First chocolate bar in traditional solid form was created in the 19th century by Joseph Fry, but his product didn’t attract much attention because it was bitter. And later milk was added to the product that made it the most famous confection.
Varieties of chocolate.
Unsweetened chocolate is the purest kind of chocolate because it consists of only cocoa solids and as a result it’s extremely bitter. So this kind of chocolate is not suitable for eating but it’s best for baking because it lends intense chocolate flavor to baked products.
Milk chocolate is considered to be very popular variety of chocolate with which most people are familiar. Unlike dark chocolate it includes high percentage of powdered or condensed milk. And dark chocolate is made of no or very little milk and is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health.
Hot chocolate is heated drink that’s great choice for cold fall and winter days. It consists of melted chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk, and sugar or chocolate syrup. Some brands include powdered milk to the chocolate so that the drink can be made with only hot water.
Blond chocolate is new variety of confection. It is caramel-colored chocolate with slightly salty taste and intense biscuit flavor. Blond chocolate is introduced by Valrhona and is called Dulcey.
Chocolate flavors are quite different. They range from usual ones such as cherry, coconut, mint, orange, fudge, and caramel to pretty unusual. Extraordinary chocolate bars with chili, curry, ginger, wasabi, chai tea, or cheese flavors are also available.
