the world of chocolate
Choc on Choc is constantly reinventing the chocolate wheel and bringing new creations to the table. But at the same time, we’re proud to say that our customers keep on coming back for our delectable designs again and again.

Remembering and repeating this mantra is essential to getting through the national tragedy of beloved chocolate bars being discontinued.

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.
