AC's Ingredients story 3 - " Milk chocolate"
Milk Chocolate, Delicious Chocolatey Creaminess
The single most popular type of chocolate — a real crowd-pleaser!
When European colonists discovered cacao during their first travels to America, they didn’t know what to make of the dark, bitter sweet. Still, following local customs, they mixed it with sugar and voilà! Chocolate was born.
It wasn’t until people added a third ingredient to the mixture that milk chocolate arrived in our hearts. The creamy, sweet and palate-coating chocolate immediately became popular, and now it’s the most used type of chocolate on the planet.
It’s easy to see why. Dark chocolate might be a bit too bitter for some, and white chocolate might lack that chocolatey bliss we all love. Milk chocolate sits right in the middle. Not too sweet, not too bitter — it’s just right.
Did you know a chocolatier created milk chocolate in Switzerland in 1839? It was a combination of cacao powder and condensed milk! The recipe has changed a bit, as every chocolate producer has its own secret recipe. Still, milk chocolate is always deliciously similar.
