If you're a regular chocri blog reader, you know I often extol the wonders of white chocolate. Its brothers, classic milk and health-conscious dark, often hog the spotlight when chocolate is discussed. But today is National White Chocolate Day, and we're celebrating by offering our white chocolate base for just $2.99.
Here are five tiny tidbits of information about white chocolate. Are you a fan? Let us know in the comments!
1.) Late night snacker? White chocolate has no caffeine, so it won't lead to tossing and turning.
2.) If white chocolate is your bag, baby, don't let anyone tell you it's not chocolate. It contains cocoa butter rather than cocoa solids, but it's totally chocolate.
3.) Before 1970, white chocolate was "virtually unknown." (I, for one, am grateful daily that it took off.)
4.) White chocolate also contains only trace amounts of theobromine, so it is safe to consume for most individuals who must avoid the chemical compound for medical reasons.
5.) Before it was called white chocolate, you could find the palest of chocolates by asking for "confectioner's coating, summer coating or Almond bark."
