National White Chocolate Day

National White Chocolate Day is dedicated to a dessert that seems paradoxical. Chocolate cannot be white, but nevertheless, this delicious combination exists and delights with amazing taste. Millions of people in the world love white chocolate, eat it with coffee, add it to desserts. But is it chocolate?

History

Until 1930, the world knew only one type of chocolate – dark. Whatever form it took, it always remained a rich brown color. But in 1930, Nestle made a splash. The company separated the dark solids from the cocoa butter, resulting in the product we all know as white chocolate.

Interesting Facts

  • Culinary experts are still arguing – is white dessert chocolate?
  • In 1945, another version of white chocolate appeared, it was developed by Kuno Baedeker, a specialist in the Merckens chocolate company.
