Bird milk candy is a soft chocolate-covered candy filled with soft meringue or milk soufflé.
It is called Ptasie mleczko in Poland and ptashyne moloko (пташине молоко) in Ukranian. This name literally means "bird's milk" or crop milk, a substance somewhat resembling milk, produced by certain birds to feed their young. However, this is not the origin of the name; rather, "bird's milk" is an idiom of ancient Greek origin meaning "an unobtainable delicacy" (compare English: "hen's teeth").
In Poland, Jan Wedel, owner of the E. Wedel Company, developed the first ptasie mleczko in 1936. According to the company's official history, Wedel's inspiration for the name of the confectionery came from his voyages to France, when he asked himself: "What could bring greater happiness to a man who already has everything?" Then he thought: "Maybe only bird milk.
The candies are also produced in post-Soviet states, in particular in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Moldova.
