NATIONAL MILK CHOCOLATE DAY
On average, we recognize three chocolate holidays a month. July celebrates chocolate as often as February, and on the 28th it is the ever popular National Milk Chocolate Day! Solid chocolate, when combined with either powdered, liquid or condensed milk, is known as milk chocolate. The most popular of all candy bars sold contain milk chocolate. Milk chocolate is also a popular ingredient in baking, specialty coffee drinks and hot chocolate.
From the mid-17th century, milk was sometimes added to chocolate beverages, but in 1875 Daniel Peter invented milk chocolate by mixing a powdered milk developed by Henri Nestlé with the liquor.
