So you're willing to eat mushroom-flavored chocolate — but what about chocolate made from camel milk? Soon, chocolate addicts with adventurous palates will have the opportunity to try the world's first camel milk chocolate. Dubai confectioner Al Nassma, which claims to be the first chocolate made of the unconventional milk, announced yesterday that it plans to expand into other Arab markets, Japan, Europe, and the United States.
"We aim to be the Godiva of the Middle East," the company's general manager, Martin van Almsick, said. He rattled off the benefits of camel milk, including more vitamin C than cow milk, less fat, less lactose, and more insulin, which makes the chocolate a better option for lactose intolerant and diabetic consumers.
Would you try eating camel milk chocolate — or drinking the milk straight up? Is camel milk poised to become the next soy milk?
