Milk Chocolate Day

July 28 is Milk Chocolate Day, everyone's favorite type of chocolate.

Made of cocoa solids - cocoa paste and cocoa butter - mixed with dry or condensed milk and sugar, milk chocolate is one of the most common types of chocolates available around the world. The other types of chocolates include dark chocolate and white chocolate.

Native to The Americas

Chocolate is an edible treat made from the extracts of the cocoa (cacao) bean found in the cocoa pod. Native to the Americas, each pod on a cacao tree has up to 30 to 50 seeds that are fermented, dried, and roasted to make cocoa solids. Chocolatiers then mix the cocoa paste, also known as chocolate liquor, and the cocoa butter with milk and sugar to make milk chocolate.

Types of Chocolate

Dark chocolate is usually made with little or no milk and has less sugar than milk chocolate. White chocolate on the other hand only has sugar, milk and cocoa butter.

It is believed that milk chocolate was first created as a drink in the mid-19th century in Germany. The first milk chocolate in the form of a bar that we all recognize today was created by Swiss chocolatier Daniel Peter in collaboration with Henri Nestlé, the founder of the chocolate company Nestlé.

How to Celebrate?

Here are some ways you can celebrate this sweet holiday:

  • Treat yourself to a bar (or two) of milk chocolate.
  • What about baking a batch of milk chocolate cookies or a vanilla cake with milk chocolate ganache icing at home? Share with family and friends.
  • Add milk chocolate to all your meals. Have milk chocolate chip pancakes with milk chocolate syrup for breakfast. Have a milk chocolate shake for a snack and milk chocolate bars for dessert after lunch and dinner.

Did You Know…

…that even though chocolate was an integral part of Aztec culture, the Aztecs couldn't themselves grow cacao?

I was showing my kids an old rotary phone when my nine-year-old asked, “How did you text on it?”

My 15-year-old daughter roared with laughter, until a thought occurred to her:

“Wait, where did you store 
your contacts?”

My grandmother called to tell me she’d gotten an e-mail account.

“Great,” I said. “Send me a message so I’ll have your e-mail address.” I waited and waited, but she never sent it.

Several days later, an envelope arrived—Grandma had written her info on a piece of paper and mailed it to me.

My nine-year-old and I passed 
a store with a sign that read “Watch Batteries Installed—$5.”

He seemed confused:

“Who would pay to watch batteries installed?”

A Saudi prince goes to America to study. A month later, he e-mails his father: “New York is wonderful, but I’m ashamed to go to school in 
my gold Mercedes because all my 
teachers travel by subway.”

A few minutes later, his dad writes back: “Stop embarrassing us. Go and get yourself a subway too!”
