The process of making Ruby Chocolate is not exactly clear. Its creators claim that it is made of a special ruby kind of cocoa beans. Critics say that most probably regular cocoa beans are used, and the difference is only in the manufacturing process. Most likely, cocoa beans are treated with citric acid in the middle of the fermentation process. This secures the pink color and extracts fruity flavors out of the beans. Indeed, ruby chocolate looks like milk chocolate half way through the process. Whether it is actually the 4th kind of chocolate after dark, milk and white, or only a 3.5 version, is not so important.
What is important is that the taste and look is different and still good. It doesn’t have any artificial colors or flavors in it and does not include any genetically modified products.
Ruby chocolate has a berry-fruity taste and flavor. It doesn’t resemble cocoa flavor or taste, similarly to white chocolate. However it is not overly sweet at all. Probably the best way to describe ruby chocolate is as a fruity, fresh and slightly sour version of milk chocolate.
