National White Chocolate Day Fun Facts

White Chocolate was the result of separating the dark solids from the rich fat of the bean known as cocoa butter, a natural part of the manufacturing process, but instead of recombining them, the cocoa butter was left to shine on its own.

  • White chocolate originates from the cocoa (cacao) plant, but it is not “chocolate.”
  • It was invented by the Nestlé company in Switzerland. The first white chocolate bar debuted in 1930.
  • White chocolate contains only trace amounts of caffeine.
  • 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.

Key Date
