this is a super-random post 😛

but don’t worry because I’m sure you’ll learn something after you read this post 🙂

White chocolate is technically not considered as chocolate.

It is not recognized as chocolate by FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) because of its composition. White chocolate is made of sugar, cocoa butter, milk, natural flavour, lecithin and vanillin.

Interestingly, if the white chocolate doesn’t contain cocoa butter, it will be called white coating or confectionery coating.
