SCHO-KA-KOLA

Pris: 49,00:- Ordinarie pris: 49:-

Tysktillverkad choklad som i stort sett är samma produkt som när den lanserades 1936 till Olympiaden i Berlin som sportchoklad. Denna choklad har hållit tyskar alerta och produktiva i över 80 år!

Chokladen passar lika bra till skyttetävlingen som när du sitter ute i skogen på långa pass då energin börjar dala. Eller så kanske det lockar att testa en produkt som inte påverkats utav trender utan behållit sin grund under decennier? Är du ute efter ordinär choklad är detta ingenting för dig, men är du däremot ute efter choklad med det lilla extra i form av naturligt koffein är detta perfekt! Det är även en utmärkt sak att ge bort i present som utan tvekan står ut i mängden och överraskar.

Still up-to-date: the classic chocolate that comes in a tin

SCHO-KA-KOLA has always been sold in the famous round tin with the striking red and white ray design. Each tin contains 16 melt-in-the-mouth wedges of SCHO-KA-KOLA, available in the classic dark chocolate variety or in a milk chocolate version. Whether light or dark: both varieties share the same unique recipe, which contains natural caffeine extracted from cocoa, cola nuts and coffee, and provide a mental boost for more energy and concentration. The cola nuts make SCHO-KA-KOLA such an energy booster. They are the fruit of the cola tree, which grows mainly in West and Central Africa and contains considerably more caffeine than ordinary coffee.

Scho-Ka-Kola (for Schokolade–Kaffee–Kolanuss) was created in 1935 and patented by the Hildebrand, Kakao- und Schokoladenfabrik manufacturer, established by chocolatier Theodor Hildebrand (1791-1854) in Alt-Berlin. It was introduced at the 1936 Summer Olympics as a performance-enhancing energy "Sport Chocolate" (German Sportschokolade).

In World War II, Scho-Ka-Kola was colloquially known as the "Aviator Chocolate" (German Fliegerschokolade), as it was commonly provided with Luftwaffe pilot and crew rations, to induce or extend wakefulness and alertness, especially on night-bombing missions, and was also issued to flight-crews in blue canisters as emergency sea-survival rations (German Seenotpackung).

Original retail canister in 1941, scho-ka-kola printed in lowercase Fraktur calligraphy. Scho-Ka-Kola was also issued during World War II to German tank crews, as well as German U-boat crews and the German Army. During the occupation period it was also distributed to the German population by the Allies.
