WRONG:

CACAO/COCOA



Technically speaking, the plant is called a “cacao tree” and the seeds and the chocolate powder made from them are called “cocoa.” These spellings are often swapped, but in contexts where botanical names matter, it’s better to stick with “cacao tree.”


Neither of these should be confused with “coca,” the source of cocaine.
