Corona chocolate is the most traditional brand of Colombian hot chocolate that you can find now in New Zealand.
A delicious drink you can enjoy at any time of day, especially in your breakfast as an alternative to the coffee or tea. You will fall in love with its sweet taste and since it comes in tablets, you will find an easy-to-make and delicious hot beverage.
You can either boil it in water or milk, although the second choice is the most common (and yummy) and mix it with your hot chocolate frother or in spanish, molinillo.
This chocolate can be enjoyed in so many ways, and you can find some of them in here.
A bit of history about Corona
In 1933 the National Company of Chocolates became a shareholder of the Galletas Noel Factorys. Subsequently, with the acquisition of Chocolates Chaves and Equitativa, Santa Fe and Tequendama, they began to consolidate themselves in the market, and, finally, they positioned the Corona, Diana and Tesalia brand.
During the 60’s, an active program to promote cocoa cultivation and diversification of its production began in the Company. In 1961 the emblematic Jet chocolate bar was born, the first chocolate candy manufactured industrially in the country, and together with it they created the first album with its collections of stickers. In 1968 they released the Natural History album, which became an important educational text for many generations.
In 2017, the largest solar roof in Antioquia and the second in the country was installed in their Rionegro Factory. Now the chocolates, nuts and cereal bars that are produced today in the Rionegro Factory have an additional ingredient: the energy of the sun. Thus, converting their pioneer plant into clean and environmentally friendly production in Colombia.
