Nestlé launches KitKat made from cocoa fruit chocolate

Nestlé has launched the first product utilising its newly developed method of producing chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit.

Launched exclusively in Japan, the KitKat Chocolatory Cacao Fruit Chocolate is coated with a 70% dark chocolate that uses the beans and pulp from the cocoa fruit as the only ingredients.

The bar comes individually or in an assortment box with other KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Bars and is available for online purchase or in the KitKat Chocolatory boutiques in Tokyo, Osaka, Kawasaki and Hiroshima.

Back in July, Nestlé announced a breakthrough enabling it to sweeten chocolate using only cocoa pulp. Now the company said that, beginning next year, it will launch cocoa pulp sweetened versions of its most popular confectionery products.
