We owe a number of things to science and it’s time to thank it again. This time, for a new source of indulgence – the pink chocolate!
Named Ruby after its red hue, the pink chocolate is fourth in the elite’s club of chocolates. It’s been over 80 long years since the third i.e. the white chocolate was invented.
Who’s to be thanked for the pink chocolate?
Chocolate company Barry Callebaut claims to have created this new flavor. A spokesperson said, “Ruby chocolate is the fourth type of chocolate and is an intense sensorial delight.”
It is made from the Ruby beans. These are special beans from the same species of cocoa used for other chocolates. It is unique because the fresh berry-fruitiness and color precursors are naturally present. Through a special processing of these beans to unlock the flavors, the ruby chocolate is prepared.
All things aside, how does it taste?
Not many people have been lucky enough to try the new chocolate yet. Also, it will take some time to finally reach the markets.
All those who have tried the fourth type of chocolate say that it offers a completely new taste experience. It is not bitter, milky or sweet, but a tension between berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness.
Even though berries are not added to the chocolate, it still has berry like flavor. How luscious is the new treat, we’ve got to wait and check it out ourselves.
The good thing is despite its pink color, there is no added flavor or color to the chocolate, it’s all natural!
Chocolate expert Angus Kennedy calls it very different and clever stuff. It’s refreshing and has a light, creamy texture.
Know the four chocolates
Ask a chocolate connoisseur and you’ll know it all. We have the dark, we have the milk and then there is the white chocolate. They are all different in taste and composition of cocoa solids.
The last known was white chocolate which was invented in 1930’s and the fourth – pink is discovered after about 80 years. But hey, many people don’t consider white chocolate as a chocolate. Know, is white chocolate really a chocolate?
While the pink chocolate is trending all over the world, are you ready to try the first new chocolate in 80 years?
