Chocolate made in the USA does have a reputation around the world for its sour and ‘unique’ taste.
But why does it taste different to chocolate in other parts of the world?
British chocolate usually has a higher fat and cocoa content than its American counterpart.
Under UK rules, milk chocolate needs to contain no less than 25 percent cocoa solids to be considered milk chocolate.
In the US, milk chocolate has to have no less than 10 percent chocolate liquor to qualify. It also normally has a higher dose of sugar.
