Dark, white or milky, chocolate is one of the world's most popular flavours.

It wasn't until the mid 18th century that chocolate evolved past its drinkable form. Cocoa powder, invented in 1828, made chocolate easy to blend with milk or water allowing for more creativity when concocting chocolate products. Chocolate was soon offered as candy by mixing cocoa butter with sugar and by 1875 milk chocolate had been developed by Daniel Peter who took his product to Henri Nestle who had perfected the making of evaporated milk. They both hit upon the idea of mixing the sweetened condensed milk with chocolate. From this period solid chocolate became more popular than drinking chocolate.
