In fact, chocolate is one of the most beloved things in the world. It had been for centuries and ages. Many of us would like to enjoy it several times a week. It is delicious, it is inviting, nutritious and seductive. But what is the story of chocolate?

Milk chocolate represents a great mix of cocoa solid and either dry or condensed milk; it contains cocoa butter, vanilla, milk solids, milk fats and chocolate liquor and approximately 300 chemicals. It was invented in 1875 by Daniel Peter. He worked in the Nestle factory in Switzerland and called his first milk invented chocolate as “Gala” (it means “from the milk” in Greek), devoting all his time and efforts to the manufacture of milk chocolate.  Another point of view about the introduction of milk chocolate is that Spain introduced milk chocolate to Europe in the 1600s or so. Then Cadbury started producing milk chocolate 200 years on.

What about health benefits? There they are. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, milk chocolate is less antioxidative. However, milk brother is a perfect mood-booster. It releases a rush of a group of peptide hormones called endorphins. The very endorphins make people feel good, fresh and enthusiastic, so milk chocolate can perfectly improve your mood. Nevertheless, you should remember that milk chocolate isn’t considered to be an antidepressant, so do not overdo it. Bad news: milk chocolate is high in calories, sugar and saturated fat. Good news: the world is full of chocoholics.

Simply present her a large box of heart candies, chocolate basket or assorted chocolate sweets – she will be delirious with delight!
