White Chocolate Day is observed annually on September 22.
Because white chocolate does not contain cocoa solids, is not chocolate in the strictest sense. During the process of manufacturing chocolate, the dark-colored solids of the cocoa bean are separated from the fatty content, but unlike milk or dark chocolate, they are not reincorporated. As a result, white chocolate does not contain as much caffeine or antioxidants as its darker counterparts.
