Celebrate National White Chocolate Day September 22
Attention, chocolate lovers! Did you know September 22 is National White Chocolate Day? What better excuse to indulge in this creamy treat?
When white chocolate bars first debuted in 1930, chocophiles knew it was no ordinary chocolate. And they were right, because for many years, white chocolate was not considered chocolate at all! Traditional chocolate is made with cocoa solids, which account for its distinctive brown color, whereas white chocolate is made with pale cocoa butter. Because white chocolate lacks cocoa solids, it falls short of traditional chocolate’s antioxidant properties, but on the flip side, white chocolate contains only trace amounts of caffeine. Long the chocolate family’s black sheep, white chocolate was officially accepted into the club in 2004, when the FDA relaxed its definition of chocolate.
Why not pick up a bar to celebrate with these easy and delicious white chocolate snacks:
- White chocolate–covered pretzel
- Hot chocolate
- Frozen white chocolate–covered bananas
- White chocolate milkshake
- Trail mix
- White chocolate–drizzled popcorn
To make the most of these chocolaty snacks, prepare them with the right kitchen tool. Don’t struggle with a knife that can slip! Instead, choose Kyocera’s MEGA Peeler, perfect for those tough shaving, shredding, and peeling jobs.
