The Trendy Ube Flavor Now in Chocolate Bars
Co Chocolat releases limited edition UBE a.k.a. purple yam chocolate bars in two exotic flavors.
Homegrown UAE, ethical chocolate brand Co Chocolat introduces its limited edition chocolate bars featuring Purple Yam, a.k.a. UBE in Southeast Asia where this delicious, exotic rootcrop is commonly used as a traditonal dessert ingredient. These chocolate bars come in two new flavors: "Ooh Bae in the Tropics" and "Ooh Bae, My Heart". Made with white chocolate infused with Ube, these bars offer a range of health benefits.
Purple yams are an excellent source of carbs, potassium, and vitamin C, as well as phytonutrients and anthocyanins that have powerful antioxidant properties, helping to protect against cell damage and reduce the risk of cancer. The flavonoids found in purple yams may also help regulate blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.
In two delightful flavors:
- "Ooh, Bae in the Tropics" is reminiscent of tropical summers. Munch on toasted coconut chips while you eat ice cream on a summer’s day… this is what it’s like eating this bar. It’s both familiar and yet exotic. Velvety and then crunchy. Coconut is an excellent source of healthy fats that can increase energy levels and metabolism.
Ingredients: Cacao Butter, milk powder, cane sugar, dehydrated purple yam, and dehydrated coconut chips.
Available in 65 grams
- "Ooh Bae, My Heart" is super smooth ube that melts in the mouth with a surprisingly delicate crunch of black sesame praline. Delicate hints of other roasted grains make this flavor quite complex, but surprise, it’s really just black sesame and our maître chocolatier's magic. Black sesame seeds contain many trace and macrominerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants that help reduce the risk of heart disease and fight cancer.
Ingredients: Cacao Butter, milk powder, cane sugar, dehydrated purple yam and black sesame seeds.
Available in 65 grams
Available to order online at www.cochocolat.com or in their physical shops in the Dubai Mall, Sharjah Ladies Club or in their factory in Warsan 3.
