Confectioners invent new type of chocolate

(WMC) - Swiss confectioners invented a new type of chocolate.

The new pink 'Ruby' chocolate was launched Tuesday, joining its milk, dark, and white brethren.

Barry Callebaut, the makers behind ruby chocolate, made the chocolate from a Ruby cocoa bean, which they said gives it an intense berry-fruitiness taste and naturally reddish color.

The taste is described not as bitter, milky, or sweet, but "tension between berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness."
