NESTLÉ JAPAN LAUNCHES NEW KITKAT

Nestle Kitkat chocolatory

Nestlé has launched the KitKat Chocolatory Cacao Fruit Chocolate, the first product to use a unique chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit. The iconic crispy KitKat wafer is coated with a 70% dark chocolate that uses the beans and pulp from the cocoa fruit as the only ingredients.

This exclusive confectionery will be available in Japan for online purchase and in the KitKat Chocolatory boutiques in Tokyo, Osaka, Kawasaki and Hiroshima. It comes individually or in an assortment box with other KitKat Chocolatory Sublime bars.

The launch of the KitKat Chocolatory Cacao Fruit Chocolate follows the announcement in July of the breakthrough to sweeten chocolate solely with cocoa pulp. Cocoa pulp surrounds the cocoa beans, and is soft, sweet and white in color. Nestlé has developed a natural approach that allows it to extract the pulp and use it in chocolate, with no compromise on taste, texture and quality.

Further products sweetened with cocoa pulp will follow in other countries next year, through some of Nestlé’s most popular confectionery brands. Nestlé has introduced a number of confectionery innovations through KitKat in Japan, such as ruby chocolate and volcanic chocolate, the company reports.
