Do You Realize Chocolate Bars Have Been Around For Over Two Hundred Years?

I know of no one that has eaten chocolate and not just absolutely loved it. There are probably some exceptions, but I am not aware of them. This is especially right of chocolate bars which come in so many varieties these days there is surely something for everyone. When you consider that you can get chocolate bars with fruit, marshmallows, nuts, caramel and more there is hardly another confection that has so many diverse choices.

In the early 1800s the chocolate bar was introduced to the masses and by the early 1900s it exploded in popularity with worldwide appeal that continues to increase and has never slowed down. Many of the chocolate bars on the market now are still made with the same recipe as those of over 100 years ago. It is nearly impossible to believe that until right after the Second World War these could be bought for only five cents.

Even though there is an nearly endless variety of different types of chocolate bars manufactured now there are a handful of large companies that have a monopoly on the making and distribution of the confectionary delight. These larger companies are known for buying the smaller companies and then repackaging the products that they know are well loved under their own name. The popularity of chocolate bars has led to some companies even adding protein to them to make them more attractive to the health conscious.

The chocolate bar that is probably most familiar to the majority of people is the Hershey’s chocolate bar which was brought to the market in the early 1900s by Milton Hershey of Pennsylvania. His recipe, though a closely guarded secret still consists of the process of choosing a dozen high quality beans which are then roasted depending on what type of bean it is. This process is followed by winnowing, grinding, conching, tempering, and then molding and packaging for shipment.

Due to the fact that some of the companies are in partnership with each other there are many of them that often use the same recipe to manufacture the chocolate with the only difference coming from the choice of cacao plant that they choose or from what area of the world they are in. Other companies have specific factories in different countries that handle certain aspects of the process.

Some of the needed substances that go into making a chocolate bar include cacao paste, cocoa butter, and sugar, as well as some optional ingredients such as vanilla, and lecithin. Regardless of the brand you go with you are sure to find a chocolate bar you will like.
