Celebrate National Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day
The Milk Chocolate with Almonds bar has been around for over a century. It was first introduced around 1908 but my sources varied in this regard. The success of this milk chocolate bar with added almonds was followed over a decade later by candy bars with other fillings in the Hershey family.
For all of the crap chocolate connaisseurs give big name candy companies like Hershey's this bar is basically chocolate with almonds and sunflower oil... the last is the big problem for me because unless it is cocoa butter and fat in dairy, I really don't think it needed to be added to any type of chocolate. There are many ways you could celebrate today such as making your own milk chocolate with almonds treats, candies, and chocolate, but Hershey's is still an option.
Tell me, readers, when was the last time you had a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar with Almonds?
Three websites were consulted for the historical information about this bar:
