“GIVE ME A BREAK” OF RUBY CHOCOLATE
NEW RUBY CHOCOLATE GETS A HOME WITH KIT KAT BARS
In case anyone didn’t know, the cocoa bean is facing a slight shortage. While it’s not the end of the world, cocoa harvesters and chocolate makers have started to get crafty, specifically Swiss based Barry Callebaut.
In September of 2017, Barry Callebaut revealed the newest version of chocolate during a private event in Shanghai. The new chocolate was dubbed “Ruby” chocolate and was being experimented with since 2004. The chocolate is called Ruby due to it being made from un-fermented cocoa beans (un-fermented beans have a pink/rosy hue to them). Ruby now becomes the fourth classification of chocolate (Milk, Dark and White) in over 80 years when White chocolate was created.
After 13 years, Ruby chocolate is now officially available. It’s a strange mix of fruity tartness with a smooth milky texture.
Now the general public can get their hands on Ruby chocolate in the form of Kit Kat bars. Japan’s top patissier Yasumasa Takagi will create limited edition “Sublime Ruby” Kit Kat bars for sale in Japan and Korea using the new Ruby chocolate.
Kit Kat bars will be the general public’s introduction to Ruby chocolate.
There are only 5,000 boxes available with seven pieces in each box. While available in stores in Japan and Korea, the Kit Kars bars can be bought online and delivered by Valentine’s Day.
Will you be dying for a piece of this chocolate?
