Callebaut® presents the interactive Chocolizer™ app

  • A new, interactive way to find and fine tune your preferred chocolate flavour
  • Chocolizer™ matches your preference with the right chocolate from over 65 Callebaut® recipes
  • Match on-trend ingredients with the right chocolate

Chocolatiers and chefs are constantly searching to create new taste experiences. Flavours and ingredients are their territory, their biotope. But finding the right chocolate taste for the ultimate “mœlleux” isn’t so easy. Or what about matching the right chocolate with that sweet & sour raspberry beer?  Callebaut® now offers a simple, interactive solution: the Chocolizer™

Chocolizer™ is taste made simple

The Callebaut® tasting panel has teamed up with a panel of food professionals. Together they have defined all possible flavours that can be recognised in a wide variety of dark, milk and white chocolates: bitter, roasted, cocoa, sweet, sour, fruity, caramel and more. All these flavours are laid out in an equalizer-like bar chart, called a taste profile, that can be literally tuned to the taste required. And so the Chocolizer™ was born.

Tune your preferred chocolate taste 

By tuning the bars of the Chocolizer™ it is possible to compose your preferred chocolate taste. The Chocolizer™ automatically responds with the chocolates that match this taste profile. It shows a Top 3 match of chocolates from the exhaustive list of Callebaut®’s chocolate recipes ranging from Finest Belgian Chocolate to Origin and Finest Selection. The Chocolizer™ also permits detailed comparison of the 3 different flavour profiles of these chocolates, in a single display: from the origin of the beans to available viscosities, along with great pairing tips and recipe suggestions.

Pairing the unexpected 

But what about matching a specific ingredient to chocolate? Suppose the idea is to create an intense harmony with blackberry and dark chocolate. Here too, Callebaut®’s Chocolizer™ is the right tool to find the best chocolate. It indicates the chocolate that goes perfectly with ingredients ranging from fruits and spices to beers and wines. This allows chefs to create innovative chocolate recipes with a perfectly harmonious taste that is fully on-trend!

Tasting is believing

There’s nothing to beat testing and tasting for yourself. Professionals who want to explore the taste of the different Callebaut® chocolates can ask the Callebaut sales representatives to drop by. Armed with an extensive sample box and the Chocolizer™ they will help you examine your needs and ideas. And they will definitely find the perfect chocolate for everyone!

The Chocolizer™ is available on your PC 24/7 at
Mobile apps can be downloaded from iTunes for iPhone, iPad and iPad mini, and from Android Market for Android tablets and smartphones.
