Recently, the finding of theobromine, biomarker for Theobroma cacao, was reported from ceramics found at Alkali Ridge in southeastern Utah. Earlier finding of theobromine was discovered in ceramic vessels from Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Archaeologists suggest that the cacao was brought into the area as a journey food and used as a drink.
