The other types of chocolates are milk chocolate and white chocolate – milk chocolate is sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk while white chocolate contains cocoa butter, sugar, and milk, but no cocoa solids.

Like any other thing, even online buying chocolates has some advantages and disadvantages.
Advantages of Online Chocolate shopping:
Limited stock: A conventional retail store usually has limited stock of some branded chocolates, and the store keeper gets irritated when too many questions are being asked. But when an online service is chosen, it gives you a wide range of chocolates. Details of its ingredients, price etc is disclosed. In other words, every single detail related to chocolate is mentioned on the website. Convenience: You can sit at your house and do online shopping. This makes the choice very easy.

Since Chocolates are eatables, they should be very hygienic. Chances of malpractices are more. Expired chocolates may be sent through online chocolate shopping. It is advised to the person placing the order for online chocolate purchase, to check the expiry date mentioned on the chocolates as soon as he receives the consignment.
