Statistics show that more than 1 billion people throughout the world eat chocolate every day, making it one of the world's most popular sweets. Derived from the seeds of the cacao tree, it's used in a wide variety of culinary dishes. Chocolate is consumed plain, used in candy bars, brownies, cakes, pudding, yogurt and more. Of course, there are also different types of chocolate, each of which has its own unique characteristics.
One of the most common types of chocolate is milk chocolate, which is characterized by the addition of milk during production. Adding milk makes the chocolate sweeter while subsequently neutralizing some of its natural bitterness. This makes it a popular choice for snacks and desserts. Another common type of chocolate is dark chocolate, which either doesn't have milk or contains significantly lower concentrations of milk. As a result, dark chocolate is more nutritious than milk chocolate but also has a somewhat bitter flavor. A third type of chocolate is white chocolate. Featuring a yellow-white color, white chocolate is made using cocoa butter.
