Eu nem achava que chocolate branco fosse chocolate de verdade. E não é. Ele é feito da manteiga do cacau. O cacau de verdade não entra. Mas entra muito açúcar na sua composição. É curioso que o Brasil seja o maior consumidor, com mais de 15% do mercado mundial.

Who eats white chocolate? A lot of people, apparently.
Nearly $1.5 billion worth of white chocolate was consumed around the world last year, according to data from Euromonitor. The US, UK, and Brazil alone gobbled up over $700 million worth, or roughly half the total.
At over $315 million sold annually, Brazil has by far the world’s largest appetite for white chocolate. It accounts for 15.5% of the country’s overall chocolate market, the highest percentage for any of the 52 major countries surveyed. Netherlands was second, with 15%; South Africa was third, with 13.5%; and Mexico was fourth, with 11%.
