Until Victorian times, chocolate was thought of as a drink. When did the first chocolate bar appear?

[A]. 1828
[B]. 1831
[C]. 1825
[D]. There is no sure date

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

No one knows for sure when the first chocolate bar appeared or even who made it, but an important event occurred in 1828. The Van Houten press was invented, which extracted cocoa butter from the bean - the same press that brought the Cadbury Brothers success with Cocoa Essence.

Chocolate is a type of sweet that is from long ago and so there is no precise date to be shown.

@Ajitesh.

Well the chocolate you are talking about is the first patented one, but it was being eaten before it also.
