We all know dark chocolate has numerous health benefits, but we cannot forget about its sweet, smooth sister: milk chocolate. So in honor of National Milk Chocolate Day (which can really be celebrated any day of the year), I thought I would retrace my milk chocolate journey and share my favorite milk chocolate candy bars, in no particular order.

Milk chocolate, though always tasty, comes in a variety of shapes, flavors and textures. This guide will help you decide which sweet treat is right for you.
