National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day

Cheesecake and white chocolate are both delicious on their own, but when you combine them into one creamy, silky dessert, you truly have something special. Few desserts can compete with white chocolate cheesecake, and people are beginning to catch on to just how good it is as a snack or as a dessert.

That’s why someone decided to go ahead and give it its own holiday, a holiday that’s observed on March 6th every year and is known as National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day. It’s a day to enjoy this decadent dessert, either by yourself or with friends and family members.

The History of White Chocolate

White chocolate was first created by Nestl√© in 1936 and called Galak, also known as Milkybar. It was sold worldwide, and it didn’t contain any artificial coloring, flavoring, or preservatives. In Australia and New Zealand, Milkybar was sold without cocoa butter, the main ingredient in white chocolate, so it wasn’t labeled as chocolate.

White chocolate is a product that contains no cocoa solids, which is chocolate in its unsweetened and raw form. While chocolate is being manufactured, the dark-colored solids of the cocoa bean are separated from its fat. These solids are added back in for milk and dark chocolate but aren’t added back to white chocolate. That makes cocoa butter the only ingredient from cacao in white chocolate.

Observing National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day

Grab yourself a white chocolate cheesecake at your local grocery store or make one in your own kitchen. That’s how you celebrate this holiday. Now go out there and enjoy some white chocolate cheesecake.

While you’re observing this holiday, be sure to use the hashtag #NationalWhiteChocolateCheesecakeDay to spread the word about it, not only among friends and family members but all around the world.
