Coffee, crunchy apple, popcorn. The chocolates of Milka continue to celebrate the brand’s 120th anniversary this year with three new winning chocolate recipes. But the key thing here is that the flavors have been dreamed up by Milka’s customers and have been brought out in a limited edition. Natacha came up with the Autumn Sweet chocolate bar, a blend of milk chocolate, apples and crunchy almonds sprinkled with cinnamon. Myriam imagined Popcorn Evening, a combination of butterscotch, milk chocolate and popcorn. While the third creation is the Coffee Break, milk chocolate, coffee aromas and cookie slivers.

With its distinctive lilac packaging adorned with its Lila the cow mascot, Milka chocolate and cookie products are instantly recognizable on the shelves of food stores in the myriad countries around the world where they are found. From France to Bulgaria, from the United States to Argentina, the tender chocolate of Milka has been enjoyed by generations of sweet tooths and other tooths. The house is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year and the classic Milka chocolate bars are featuring tender messages with each chocolate square on the bar presenting words or drawings to create a message. Tenderness has been an integral part of the house’s advertising campaigns since the 1960s. Made from alpine milk, Milka has sponsored alpine skiing stars since 1995. Milka is owned by Mondelez International, one of the world’s largest snack companies, and whose motto is Snacking Made Right.
