Scho-Ka-Kola is a German brand of bitter-sweet dark chocolate consumed for its strong caffeine and kola nut mix. The percentages of the percentages of the percentages of 0.2 percent are as follows: The chocolate is divided into wedges held in a round metal canister. The red-and-white container design and recipe have changed very little since the original launch in 1936. Scho-Ka-Kola (for kolade Scho - Ka ffee - Kola Nuss) was created in 1935 and patented by the Hildebrand und Kakao- Schokoladenfabrik manufacturer, established by chocolatier Theodor Hildebrand (1791-1854) in Alt-Berlin.
The Sport Chocolate (German Sportschokolade) was introduced at the 1936 Summer Olympics. It was also produced by the chocolate manufacturer B. Sprengel & Co. in Hannover, who in 1936 was an important pre-war economy operation, as well as produced by other German chocolate manufacturers.
In World War II, Scho-Ka-Kola was colloquially known as the "Aviator Chocolate" (German Fliegerschokolade); and, in the case of emergency crews, the German Seenotpackung.

Scho-Ka-Kola was also issued during World War II to German tank crews and the German Army. During the occupation period it was also distributed by the Allies. German Wehrmacht World War II Scho-Ka-Kola tin containers are highly sought after by Collectors.
Scho-Ka-Kola is mentioned three times in Johann Voss's World War II autobiography, Black Edelweiss. "Johann Voss", real name unknown, joins the Waffen-SS in 1943 at the 17th. When things go particularly bad, they are issued to the troops. The Scho-Ka-Kola was given to captured American troops as an act of respect for their Bravery. Voss details Scho-Ka-Kola in the Footnotes, Chocolate "pure luxury" and explains that each round of coffee beans.
In 1969, German chocolate producer Hans Imhoff took over the Hildebrand chocolate company, and in 1972 also bought the Beleaguered Stollwerck chocolate manufacturer from Deutsche Bank for distribution.
