Think you love chocolates?

Most chocolate lovers will claim that there is nothing about chocolates they don’t know. White, milk or dark … If you are a chocolate lover you probably will take it any way you can get it.

Think again … There is a new chocolate in town

Swiss chocolate giant Barry Callebaut has just invented a totally new type of creamy goodness. The new chocolate is named Ruby, after its characteristic red hue. Ruby chocolate offers a unique taste experience, which is very light and fruity.

Ruby chocolate is the first new type to be invented since the white version emerged 80 years ago

Barry Callebaut says it used the natural ruby cocoa bean for the flavoring and distinctive hue of the new confection, with no berries, berry flavor or coloring added. The Zurich-based company spent 13 long years developing this new sweet treat.

Barry Callebaut is the world’s leading supplier of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products. It was created in 1996 through the merger between Belgian chocolate maker Callebaut and French chocolate producer Cacao Barry.

Ruby chocolate is expected to become a huge hit when it comes out

The fourth chocolate was launched at an event in Shanghai on Sept. 5th, 2017. Currently, it’s not available to the public; it may take between six to 18 months for this new product to hit the shelves.
