Now officially the fourth main type of chocolate after milk, dark and white, the new variety uses the ruby cocoa bean to produce a uniquely smooth and fruity flavor.

The last new type of chocolate, white, was developed all the way back in the 1930s.

"Ruby chocolate is very different and clever stuff," said industry expert Angus Kennedy.

"It's refreshing and has a light, creamy texture. It tastes so light and fruity you don't really realize you're gobbling up one chocolate after the other, so it means consumers will be able to eat more of it than other types of conventional chocolate."

"Whether this a good or bad thing depends on your point of view."

no cacau/cocoa no chocolate, just like a burguer without meat isn´t a burger.  Having wrote that I do not question it´s quality or flavor.

That's it, we are now officially in the future! A world where's there is pink chocolate! To see their faces when I'll tell my great-grand-kids there was no pink chocolate back in my days...
