Fun Facts

  1. Milk chocolate must contain 10 percent chocolate liquor, along with its dream (or other dairy products) and sugar.
  2. White chocolate contains no chocolate liquor, but instead consists of cacao butter, sugar, dairy products, and flavorings; it must contain at least 20 percent cacao butter and no more than 55 percent sugar.
  3. Chocolate milk and other flavored milks have less sugar than sodas and most juice drinks…and pack a whole lot more nutrition. All milk has about 14 grams of natural sugar (lactose) per cup, so if you see 20 grams of sugar listed on the label of chocolate milk, only around 6 grams is added sugar.
  4. Research shows that kids choose chocolate milk instead of other sweetened drinks, thus drink more milk in general. The result is that children and teens who drink chocolate milk have a better overall diet quality than those who don’t. And, they weigh no more than their non-chocolate-milk-drinking peers.
  5. Chocolate milk is 85 percent water, making it a very effective fluid replacement after intense exercise.
