Palm oil out of chocolate, camel milk in

Consumers rule – Cadbury has bowed to pressure  from customers upset by the company’s decision to add palm oil to its chocolate.

They’re dumping the oil and reverting to the original recipe which uses cocoa butter.

They are also sticking to the glass and a half of milk of which they boast and as far as I know that’s dairy milk.

On the other side of the world that’s not the case. Al Nassma  a Dubai-based company is producing camel milk chocolate.

If the good people of Dubai can do it with camels, why can’t we do it with sheep?

Whitestone and Blue River Dairy both produce tasty sheeps milk cheese, Blue River also makes sheeps milk ice cream.

There might be a niche for sheeps milk chocolate too – it would have to be good for ewe 🙂

  1. It’s good news. But probably too late for me. I was already a fan of Whitakers chocolate before Cadbury switched recipes. Now I see no reason to go back. Better taste, better value (remember the Cadbury price hike?) and best of all, it is still made in New Zealand.

    Yes, I realise that last point makes me something of an economic dinosaur, but I’d rather keep Kiwis in work when I have the option.
