German chocolate did not originate in Germany. Instead, it is named for Englishman Sam German, who developed a sweet chocolate baking bar for the Massachusetts-based chocolate company where he was employed. “German’s Sweet Chocolate” later became known as German sweet chocolate and led to the popularity of German chocolate cake.
