It was in Zapotlán el Grande, a small Mexican town in the state of Jalisco where Carlos Ríos and his wife Baudelia Martínez were almost forced to start a business that would allow them to obtain enough income to support their family. This is how they began to produce chocolate in their own kitchen and sold it house to house. Some time later, they decided to call their company "El Cometa". Over the time, the different styles of chocolates that "El Cometa" produced became the favorites of the region, however one of them stood out against the others. This favorite was the "Rey" (King) in its "Amargo" (Bitter) version and it was in 1969 that they decided to change the name of the entire company to: "Chocolate Rey Amargo"
