Today on the tray: Milk chocolate

Cadbury's Milk TrayJuly 28 is National Milk Chocolate Day.

How does milk chocolate differ from other types of chocolate? Wikipedia says, “Milk chocolate is solid chocolate made with milk in the form of milk powder, liquid milk, or condensed milk added. In the 1870s, Swiss confectioner Daniel Peter had developed solid milk chocolate using condensed milk, but German company Jordan & Timaeus in Dresden, Saxony, invented milk chocolate already in 1839; hitherto it had only been available as a drink.”

Cadbury introduced Milk Tray boxed milk chocolates in 1915. Today, in honor of National Milk Chocolate Day, let Michael’s TV Tray be known as Michael’s Milk Tray!
