Chocolate Almonds & Toffee Milka
Philippe Suchard founds his confectionery in Neuchâtel , Switzerland onNovember 17, 1825. He proposes fresh and new desserts , “with the fine chocolate of his factory” .
His chocolate does not contain any milk . In 1875, Daniel Peter created the milk chocolate Suchard also marketed from the 1890s .
In 1901, the trademark “Milka” was registered. It is generally considered that the word “Milka” is the association of the German words Mil ch und Ka kao (“milk and cocoa”), although at the time, people thought it was a tribute to Carl Russ-Suchard to performances of Wagner’s operas by Milka Ternina , a famous Croatian soprano.
