The Rich History Of Milk Chocolate

The history of milk chocolate is as rich as its taste. The term “milk chocolate” was used to describe a milk and chocolate drink that was introduced in London in 1687 which later became very popular in France and then in the United States. 

Swiss chocolatier, Daniel Peter, in 1875 perfectly combined sugar, cocoa, and condensed milk, creating the first ever milk chocolate bar. 

This discovery led to mass production and a rapid growth in popularity, especially after huge companies like Hershey's and Cadbury introduced their own milk chocolate products. 

During the 20th century, milk chocolate dominated the global chocolate market, with Switzerland initially taking the lead in production. 

Over the years, countries like England, Canada, and Japan, also became major producers of milk chocolate.
