Today's Reason to Celebrate

September 22, 2014 is

National White Chocolate Day

It’s National White Chocolate Day! White chocolate was invented by the Nestlé company in Switzerland. The first white chocolate bar debuted in 1930.

Despite its long history, for many years the confection we know as “white chocolate” was not officially chocolate at all. White chocolate does not contain cocoa solids—one of the main ingredients in traditional chocolate. In 2004, ten years after chocolate manufacturers filed the first petition, the FDA finally relaxed its definition of “chocolate” and accepted white chocolate into the family. According to the regulations, true white chocolate must contain at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids, 3.5% milk fat, and less than 63% sugar.

Pick up a scrumptious white chocolate truffle or a package of white chocolate covered pretzels to celebrate!
