5. Chocolate bar: JS Fry & Sons, 1847
There is not much in the world that compares to the comfort of biting into a bar of chocolate. This is a universal guilty pleasure and it is hard to imagine life without this chocolatey goodness. Joseph Storrs Fry and his family owned business JS Fry & Sons produced the first modern day chocolate bar in 1847 after years of business name change and directional goals.
