3. White Chocolate Isn’t Really Chocolate
It may say chocolate on the label, but white chocolate is not true chocolate. Chocolate contains cocoa solids, while white chocolate is made from cocoa butter, lecithin, milk, and sugar. Chocolate or not, this ingredient tastes dreamy in a white chocolate mocha.

Still, it makes for a fun fact to tell your friends.
