WORLD'S FIRST CHOCOLATE BAR
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first chocolate bar?
In 1759, Joseph Fry started making
chocolate. In 1761, Joseph along with John Vaughan purchased the chocolate
business of Walter Churchman and named the company Fry, Vaughn, and Company.
In 1795 after the death of Joseph, Joseph Storrs
Fry takes over the company and patents a method of grinding cocoa beans using a
Watt steam engine. This helped bring factory techniques into the cocoa business.
After a variety of name changes because of deaths,
the name is finally changed to Joseph Fry & Son. The company was moved to
Keynsham close by Bristol, England.
In 1847, the factory molded the very first
chocolate bar by mixing cocoa butter back into the chocolate and adding sugar.
This created a paste, which could be molded into the form of a chocolate bar.
