A chocolate firm says they have invented a fourth type of chocolate after milk, dark and white – the first new type in 80 years.
Swiss chocolate giant Barry Callebaut says it used the ruby cocoa bean to create a confectionery with “berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness.”
The new chocolate, named Ruby after its characteristic red colour.
It is only the fourth ever type to be created since the white version in the 1930s.
Time will tell if it will become a new type of chocolate as widespread as the others. One thing in its favour is that it has been made by the largest manufacturer of both chocolate and cocoa products.
