Kit Kat has a gorgeous new addition to their resume: Kit Kat Ruby. And if you have been keeping up with all things cacao, you'd know this bar is made with rare ruby cocoa beans.
The global love for KitKat is undoubtedly not a new phenomenon. Moreover, the chocolate-covered wafer treat is a standout amongst a majority of Australia's chocolate lovers. But now, Nestle has chosen to give an unseen twist by creating a brand-new flavor based on the revelation of the world's fourth sort of chocolate.
As indicated by the Daily Mail, the ruby red blocks were sold in Melbourne a year ago and were loved by people to such an extent, that they flew off the racks almost instantly. Individuals even began selling the new variants for a four-figure price on the web, given their interest and rarity.
However, at this point, it appears that everybody who lives near a Woolworths will probably get their hands on them as they'll be released across the nation. Head Chocolatier Connie Yuen expressed, "Ruby chocolate was an instant hit at KitKat Chocolatory last year, with KitKat Ruby Sublime selling out in just 10 days."
"KitKat has been inundated with requests from consumers across the country since Ruby chocolate was introduced. We're delighted to be giving more people the chance to try it, with the launch of limited edition KitKat Ruby, timed perfectly to celebrate ruby chocolate's first birthday in Australia!" she added.
The new flavor will hit the stores on May 1, however, there's no information regarding how long they'll stick around, so you better hurry. The ruby red KitKat was released in the UK a year ago after it absolutely rocked in South Korea and Japan - is there any good reason why it wouldn't, it looks delightful!
The new flavor was made by Swiss researchers in 2017, which is the first run through in 80 years that a new chocolate type has been discovered. Chocolatier Barry Callebaut has uncovered the new development, depicting it as 'an intense sensorial delight. A tension between berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness'.
The chocolate is produced using the ruby cocoa bean and the organization has figured out how to draw the bean's natural flavors out. As indicated by their site, no berries, berry enhancing or color is used. In an announcement, the organization says, "The ruby bean is unique because the fresh berry-fruitiness and color precursors are naturally present."
"The cocoa beans are sourced from different regions of the world. The bean has a specific set of attributes, which Barry Callebaut managed to unlock through an innovative process that took many years to develop. The fourth type in chocolate offers a totally new taste experience, which is not bitter, milky or sweet, but a tension between berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness," the statement concluded.
