Invented by a nutritionist, comes the first chocolate bar with meat.
Those who love flavored chocolate already have several choices in specialist shops. But a nutritionist from Auckland, New Zealand, decided to go further, creating the first chocolate with beef.
The idea came to Mustafa Farouk, who made it real in collaboration with an artisan chocolate shop. The combination seemed perfect for mixing meat proteins with the energy of chocolate sugars.
Realizing it is not simple: what is needed, first of all, is to transform the meat into what Farouk calls "chocolate butter", a treated stringy paste that is then used in the production of the bar itself.
The taste, in the end, is clearly different from traditional chocolate, even if the taste of the meat is not felt in the final result. Those who tasted it appreciated chocolate with meat, to the point that what had to be an experiment became a successful commercial product.
