Chocolate is one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world, and a large number of foodstuffs involving chocolate have been created. Gifts of chocolate molded into different shapes have become traditional on certain holidays. Chocolate letters are a popular tradition in Holland, with the first initial of everyone's name being given to each person starting with the youngest. Chocolate is also used in cold and hot beverages such as chocolate milk and hot chocolate. Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree, a small evergreen tree native to the deep tropical region of the Americas. Much of the chocolate consumed today is in the form of sweet chocolate, which is a combination of cocoa solids, cocoa butter or other fat, and sugar. Milk chocolate is sweet chocolate that additionally contains milk powder or condensed milk. White chocolate contains cocoa butter, sugar, and milk, but no cocoa solids. It is best to store chocolate away from other foods, as it known to absorb different aromas. Typically chocolates are packed or wrapped, and placed in proper storage with the correct humidity and temperature. Chocolate is also frequently stored in a dark place or protected from light by wrapping paper.
