It’s one of the biggest debates in the industry and one that stirs some very strong opinions, but what is better, white or dark chocolate?
The two may both be called chocolate but white chocolate isn’t technically a ‘chocolate’ as it doesn’t contain any cocoa solids, just cocoa butter!
But that doesn’t stop us loving it here at Kacao.
The lack of cocoa solids and the added milk and sugar means white chocolate has a much sweeter, milder and creamier taste - perfect if you’re not a fan of the bitter notes some dark chocolates can have.
Paired beautifully with fruit and citrus flavours, such as lemon and strawberry, white chocolate is especially lovely enjoyed in the summer. Or, if you’re like me, just any time, really.
Dark chocolate on the other hand goes brilliantly with nuts, caramel and coffee. It can also be perfectly paired with ginger and orange, Kacao’s Chocolate Thins are a perfect example of that collaboration – delicious.
Not tempting enough? Dark chocolate actually heralds a few health benefits, too.
Containing from 50 to 85 percent cocoa, dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants found in the cocoa bean. It has also been proven to improve blood flow and lower blood pressure.
So, if you’re looking for a little treat but less of the guilt, dark chocolate could be your solution.
But we’re all for promoting a balanced diet - so a bit of both has got to be the right answer…right?
