National Milk Chocolate Day is dedicated to all lovers of this amazing delicacy, and is celebrated on July 28th. According to statistics, milk chocolate is recognized as the most popular because it has a smooth, uniform, creamy texture. It first appeared in Germany in the early 19th century as a drink. The chocolatier Daniel Peter from Switzerland gave the dessert a tile shape, with the help of Henri Nestlé, the founder of Nestlé.
The holiday was founded by specialist members of the National Confectioners Association in 2019. Its mission is to draw people’s attention to this sweet product of cocoa beans. Despite the ‘national’ status, this day is not a day off, so you can safely buy a bar of your favorite sweet and share it with colleagues.
