Is white chocolate really chocolate?
Some people think white chocolate is just another form of chocolate, but the truth is that white chocolate isn't really chocolate at all. While milk chocolate and dark chocolate are derived from cocoa powder, white chocolate is made from cocoa butter. This lack of chocolate solids means that white chocolate doesn't qualify as real chocolate (although it is still pretty tasty).
What is a Cracker Jack?
In 1896 the name Cracker Jack was officially registered (before then the snack had been called candied popcorn and peanuts) and the familiarly sticky and sweet candy we know today was born. Back in the day, the term “cracker jack” could refer to anything of high quality, so it’s no wonder the name stuck! The coining of the name, however, was just the first of many big steps for this candy favorite.
