The team of the confectionery factory Rūta is particularly proud of the chocolate collection “Rūta Chocolate Masters. STORIES OF CHOCOLATES”, which won the gold medal. It provided an opportunity to introduce a new 4th type of chocolate – Ruby – to its customers. This fresh news added another vivid dab on the palette of chocolate flavours.
After more than 10 years of searching and improving, spent unveiling secrets of cocoa beans, chocolate producers Barry Callebaut (Switzerland) invented a unique method of preparation of cocoa beans, which has liberated their particular flavour and colour. The unique colour and playful fruit notes come naturally, without use of any colourants or food additives. Substances that remind of the smell and colour of fresh berries naturally exist in Ruby cocoa beans, therefore the exceptional balance of freshness and sweetness of berries is maintained.
Chocolate collection “Rūta Chocolate Masters. STORIES OF CHOCOLATES” is four top quality chocolate types that perfectly match the fluffy pistachio cream and offer an opportunity to take a refined trip on paths of the history of chocolate. Get in the mood for surprising sensations and start on a journey of flavours. Four different times produced four types of chocolate: dark chocolate of subtle bitterness, milk chocolate of velvety texture, sweet white chocolate and mildly sour Ruby. All 4 types of chocolates are presented in one box in order that the journey on the paths of the history of chocolate would be particularly rewarding and different flavours would make one another even more prominent. A booklet on 4 chocolate types is inside the elegant box. All you have to do is to enjoy and find your perfect flavour.
The chocolate collection which was released for sale in summer this year has already won recognition by chocolate fans and is particularly appreciated as a souvenir gift abroad.
