The most popular kind of chocolate in Britain (which incidentally has the highest chocolate consumption per head of population in the world).

This kind of chocolate is also the most popular in Ireland and in the Scandinavian countries.

Traditional European milk chocolate has a composition of at least 25% cocoa and 14% milk, resulting in a big argument within the EU as to whether British chocolate could be sold labelled as "milk chocolate" on mainland Europe. Eventually after many years of squabbling and millions of (pounds | euros | dollars) (delete as appropriate) being spent, the Eurocrats decided that British chocolate could be sold abroad if it was labelled as "family milk chocolate"
