The chocolate industry is no joke. By 2015 it had reached a worth of $101 Billion and only continues to rise. It makes sense when you hear this why the industry has become so competitive. There are so many different companies out there looking for market share. You have the major brands such as Nestle and Cadbury’s who have a stronghold on the market. This means that smaller companies have to create a niche for their product that will make it stand out. Here are the weirdest chocolate flavours available to buy:
· Sweet Potato KitKat
Sweet Potato has become very popular in recent years and is even described as a “superfood” but is putting in chocolate a step too far? Only available in Japan, this purple sweet potato KitKat is actually a popular flavour.
· Bacon Chocolate
This product answers the question “what if we take two really popular foods and put them together?” If you want to combine chocolate and bacon then there are actually several companies out there that sell this product.
· French Toast Chocolate
Okay, so this one actually sounds amazing. It’s a hard product to track down but is surely worth trying to find. Online reviews for the item seem to be raving about it.
· Curry Powder Chocolate
Western civilizations love Indian food – it’s one of the most popular cuisines. But mixing it with chocolate doesn’t seem like something that we are going to take to.
· Peanut & Ketchup Chocolate
Thankfully this was a limited edition product and is no longer in production. But what sort of twisted mind thought that this would be a tasty treat? We can understand peanuts and chocolate, however, adding in ketchup just seems unnecessary.
· Red Fire Bar
If you want a fiery kick with your chocolate then this is the product for you. Packed with Mexican chillies, Chipotle chillies and cinnamon. This dark chocolate will be a challenge for most people to consume.
· Weirdest Chocolate Flavours: Ant Chocolate
Perhaps the strangest one to make the list is ant chocolate. Yes, it is chocolate that has ants in it. We don’t know who thought up this idea but we’d like to ask them why. If you want a bit of insect with your chocolate bar then this is for you.
· Cigar Chocolate
Mix your nicotine with chocolate, because why not? This chocolate bite contains cigar leaves that are soaked in rum and cognac. They do look pretty cool though…
