Everything Chocolate

CHOCOLATE lovers will never want to leave the CacaoRich chocolate boutique in Johor Baru once they step into the gallery.

The shelves are lined with more than 60 types of chocolate collections which come in various shapes and sizes.

There are white chocolates, dark chocolates, milk chocolates, chocolate bars and truffles, and chocolates with durian, tomato and sesame flavours.

Whether you are buying chocolates as gifts or for self-indulgence, there will be something to suit any whim and budget.

For a cup of chocolate heaven, try the CacaoRich hot chocolate pack which comes in two packages.

Both come in a bottle that is shaped like the figure eight to signify that there will not be a bulge around the waistline when one consumes CacaoRich, which is rich in antioxidants.

Chief innovation officer June Tan said the chocolate malt drinks contain antioxidants, which is said to inhibit cancer growth and kills cancer cells.


“We have the bottle with the red label, which is tagged ‘365 days’, and the bottle with the green label tagged ’24 hours’ so that customers will have a choice as to which packaging they prefer.

“For those who have a busy lifestyle, they can choose the coffee sachets which are available in a eight-sachet pack or the 18-sachet pack,” she said.

For an alternative to hot chocolate there is also the spicy chocolate drink.

“The hot and spicy chocolate drink is something new in the market,” she said.

For the children, there is the Ooom series which comes in a variety of flavours like orange and strawberry.

Tan said the company has an advantage over pricing as GCB Marketing Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Guan Chong Bhd, is

one of the leading players in the manufacturing and trading of cocoa-derived food ingredients and cocoa-related products.

Among the company’s signature products is the “chocolate petite” pack, which offers the individually-packed orange, mint, blanc, noir and milk chocolates where customers can have a taste of the different flavours.

The gallery, located at Jalan Ah Siang in Tanjung Puteri, is open from 8.30am to 5.30pm daily except weekends when it opens from 8am to 5pm.
