The world’s largest food company, Nestlé has recently announced their new 70% dark chocolate is made from the cacao fruit using only the beans and fruit. The new chocolate has no added refined sugar and instead uses the cacao fruit’s pulp to sweeten the candy. In autumn, the confectionery plans to release their chocolate at KITKAT Chocolatery stores in Japan and by online mail-order.

The company says it will be available in eight different chocolate stores in Japan. The chocolatery intends to expand the new chocolate globally after 2020.

In a Press Release, Nestlé describes it as, “A new chocolate that delivers natural sweetness and subtle acidity made entirely from cacao fruit, using cacao beans and pulp.”

Nestlé claims the chocolate made entirely from the cacao fruit has “no compromise on taste, texture and quality.” The cacao fruit’s pulp surrounds the beans and it is soft and white. Usually, the pulp is used as sugar when fermenting the cacao fruit beans. It is the first time the pulp is being used to naturally sweeten chocolate.

Patrice Bula, Head of Strategic Business Units, Marketing and Sales at Nestlé, said, “We’re proud to bring chocolate lovers a new chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit without adding refined sugar. This is a real innovation which uses the natural sweetness of the cocoa pulp to provide a pure, novel chocolate experience.”

Chef Takagi, the Japanese pâtissier behind KITKAT’s limited-edition released, “It is an innovation that focuses on the fact that cacao is originally a fruit and provides the full taste of cacao.”

The swiss company has been selling chocolate since 1904. Nestlé takes pride in continuing to create new products for the world to enjoy. In 2018 they were the first company to bring Ruby chocolate to the market, which was KITKAT’s bestselling chocolate that year.
