Pink Chocolate – level 3
The newest natural colour for chocolate is pink, after 80 years of the colours that we are used to. The colour comes from a ‘newly discovered’ cocoa bean, and people have been developing it for 13 years.
Some people are sceptical about the claims about pink chocolate. Angus Kennedy, editor of a magazine about sweets, says that people are selling this to those who are ‘hedonistic, self-indulgent consumers’ that are not worried about the cost. He thinks that people will sell this chocolate for at least twice as much just because they can.
Fatima Mendy, founder of a chocolate store, said that all cocoa beans become dark chocolate. She thinks that the pink chocolate will either be a crossbreed or white chocolate mixed with fruit.
Difficult words: claims (what people say), hedonistic (someone who thinks that pleasure is the most important thing), self-indulgent (when you get things that you like but do not need), crossbreed (when two different plants or animals breed together, they make a new plant or animal).
