When someone asks you to name different kinds of chocolate, you could go on forever – orange chocolate, mint chocolate, dark chocolate, hot chocolate, white chocolate, gin chocolate… But whatever the flavour, most solid chocolate has one of three bases: white, milk, or dark. But did you know that a fourth kind of chocolate has been created?

Renowned chocolate manufacturer, Barry Callebaut, recently announced that they had created ‘ruby’ chocolate alongside the three main kinds. Ruby chocolate is made from a specific cocoa bean (called, surprisingly, ‘ruby’), and has a reddish tinge to it.

Unlike the sweetness of white chocolate, the creaminess of milk chocolate, or the bitterness of dark chocolate, ruby chocolate has an almost berry-like flavour that makes it completely different.

It’s been 80 years since white chocolate was announced as the third variety of chocolate, so it’s really exciting to have a brand new kind to experiment with. Will it join the Choc on Choc family? Who knows!
