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: Who was the first member of the Cadbury family to become involved with the world of chocolate?
Correct Answer John Cadbury (1801-1889) opened a shop in Bull Street, Birmingham in 1824. He was a tea dealer and coffee roaster, but he experimented with cocoa beans - preparing small quantities to sell in his shop. Benjamin Head was his brother and he later became one of the original Cadbury Brothers. Their father, Richard Tapper Cadbury owned a linen draper's shop in Birmingham. George Cadbury was John's son who established the Bournville factory and founded the village of Bournville.
