Question: In 1875, Daniel Peter produced the first milk chocolate bar using powdered milk. What nationality was he?
Correct Answer The idea of combining chocolate and milk was not an entirely new concept, as between 1849 and 1875 the Cadbury Brothers sold a milk chocolate drink. But the Swiss chocolate bar was a huge success in Britain, and in 1898, Cadbury Brothers responded with their own chocolate bar. They sent George Cadbury Jr. on a fact-finding mission to Switzerland. Eventually in 1905, they produced a bar with a flavour to rival the Swiss chocolate, using fresh milk rather than powdered. Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate was born.
Question: Until Victorian times, chocolate was thought of as a drink. When did the first chocolate bar appear?
Correct Answer No one knows for sure when the first chocolate bar appeared or even who made it, but an important event occurred in 1828. The Van Houten press was invented, which extracted cocoa butter from the bean - the same press that brought the Cadbury Brothers success with Cocoa Essence.
