    White Chocolate Info: White chocolate does not have a brown color or a chocolate taste because it does not contain any cocoa products. White chocolate is made up of cocoa butter, sugar and milk solids. So why is it called chocolate? It gets its name from the cocoa butter, although some chocolate fans do not think it should be called chocolate at all.
