July 28th National Milk Chocolate Day

When Columbus discovered chocolate in the America’s the Natives were using in as a drink which was rather bitter. he sent it back to Europe where at first it was not well received. Someone decided it might be better if sugar were added to it and it sudden;y became a hit! Though it was primarily dark chocolate until another someone decided to add milk to the batch and suddenly, we had milk chocolate which most people prefer today. Who knows, maybe someone else will come up with adding nuts or raisins or something even wilder to chocolate!

How to celebrate – Try chocolate in it’s natural form. Compare dark chocolate to milk chocolate. Experiment with different things you can add to chocolate.
