Featuring the iconic four-finger wafer bar, KITKAT Ruby is sure to stand out with the distinctive pink hue of its premium Ruby chocolate. As the world's first new chocolate variant to be created in 80 years following dark, milk and white chocolate, the Ruby chocolate was developed completely without flavouring, colouring sensation worldwide, which was made by Swiss chocolate and cocoa processor Barry Callebaut from specially-selected Ruby cocoa beans found in major cocoa-growing regions including the Ivory Coast, Ecuador and Brazil.
Mr Sachin Goel, Business Executive Officer for Confectionery Business Unit (ASEAN Markets), Nestle Malaysia, commented, "We are thrilled to be bringing KITKAT Ruby to Malaysian shores@ This marks the first country in Southeast Asia where KITKAT is introducing this incredible new chocolate sensation.

KITKAT has always epitomised the perfect break, and with the Ruby chocolate's naturally derived intense fruity flavour and lusciously smooth texture, our consumers are sure to enjoy the KITKAT Ruby.
The launch of KITKAT Ruby took place at the opening of the new KITKAT Chocolatory Store in Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur. First opened to consumers in 2016, the KITKAT Chocolatory offers consumers the chance to create their own customised KITKAT from over 10,000 different combinations of hand-made chocolate and toppings to personalised packaging designs. The new KITKAT chocolatory Store now also features an open kitchen concept, where consumers are able to witness the creation process of their customised KITKAT products, or try their hand at creating their own KITKAT.
Chef Andy Van den Broeck, Senior Technical Advisor, Product Development of Barry Callebaut in Asia Pacific, was present at the launch. With his deep expertise in the chocolate-making process, the creative Belgian chef captivated the crowd with a fascinating demonstration of Ruby choocalte pralines with saffron-infused white chocolate ganache filling, showing the step-by-step process of tempering, shell moulding, filling, closing and de-moulding.

Hotter than ever, TABASCO® Sauce has ‘fired-up’ the taste buds of many for 150 years now. In 1868, Edmund McIlhenny created a spicy sauce from the simplest of ingredients, heirloom tabasco peppers, salt and vinegar, to enliven the flavours in foods for family and friends. The creation of this simple sauce on a small stretch of land known as Avery Island, would unwittingly change the way the world eats forever.

The iconic red-capped bottle with the diamond label is enjoyed by TABASCO® Sauce lovers in more than 196 countries and territories and labelled in 22 languages and dialects.
The whole world is joining in to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this iconic sauce. In New Orleans, the McIlhenny Company organised a comedic burlesque dating to the late 19th century that hasn’t been performed in its entirety in more than a century. All over the world, fans were invited to events big and small, where they got a chance to taste the exciting and unexpected ways the world’s top chefs and creative cooks use TABASCO® Sauce.
Mohan Alagappar, General Manager of GBA Corporation Sdn Bhd, exclusive distributor for TABASCO ® Sauce said, “The 150th anniversary of this tabasco sauce is so exciting, that it’s infectious. People from all over the world have come together to rejoice in the success of their favourite sauce. The careful craftsmanship and versatility of TABASCO® Sauce has made it a friend of chefs, home cooks, bartenders and food lovers.”
“Malaysians in particular have been adding TABASCO® Sauce to everyday favourites such as Pizza or Spaghetti to give it that extra ‘oomph’. This instantly recognizable pepper sauce is just as at home in open air restaurants and the finest dining establishments as it is in the home pantries, kitchen table tops and even the handbags of food lovers all over the world. It is exciting to imagine where TABASCO® Sauce will go and how it will be used over the next 150 years,” added Mohan.
Due to its popularity, the sauce has more than 10 varieties from mild to extra hot, and from sweet to smoky, to satisfy the taste buds of its consumers.

Multi-vitamins are known to be essential in maintaining good health of the body, but they are also as important in maintaining the health of our skin. With Mamonde’s new Vital Vitamin skincare line formulated with a 7-vitamin complex, you can now recharge your dull and tired skin! Both the Vital Vitamin Essence and Vital Vitamin Cream is made to help revitalize and provide moisture to the skin so that it glows from deep within.
One of the key ingredients used in the formulation of the Vital Vitamin line includes the Bitter Orange flower that is extracted on the day that they are picked to prevent changes in fragrance and colour. Unlike the sweet orange flowers which are more widely used, the Bitter Orange flowers are known to be more effective because of their shorter blooming period. These flowers are handpicked petal by petal and only 1kg of essential oil is obtained from 1000kg of petals. Other than providing moisturizing and antioxidizing benefits to the skin, these flowers also gives nice deep fragrance.
The rest of the ingredients under this skincare line are made up of six different vitamins, all working together to bring tired skin back to life. These vitamins include Vitamin B3 to help brighten the skin, Vitamin B5 to strengthen the skin’s barrier, Vitamin F that provides a smoothening effect for smoother and finer looking skin, Vitamin E to maintain skin elasticity and the very well-known Vitamin C that helps to clear the skin, leaving it looking fresh and pure. An extra special vitamin that is also part of this 7-vitamin complex is Vitamin P that helps to further boost absorption of Vitamin C into the skin. Listed below are the two products under the Mamonde Vital Vitamin line:
1. Vital Vitamin Essence, 100ml (RM135)
The essence under the Vital Vitamin line contains antioxidizing vitamins C, E and F that are encapsulated into petal-shaped capsules which burst onto skin as it touches the skin’s surface to give it vitality and help it maintain looking energized. The remaining B3, B5 and P vitamins are incorporated into the essence itself. A water essence texture also ensures that the product spreads lightly over the skin’s surface and is fully absorbed without leaving a sticky sensation and ensuring the formation of a moisturized and smooth skin barrier!

There are several ways to fully utilize the Vital Vitamin Essence: 
• Applying the essence as part of your daily skincare routine. 
• Soaking some sheet masks or cotton pads with the essence and leave them on your face for about 10 minutes. More effective if used cold. (especially when skin needs reenergizing) 
• Soak a cotton pad with Vital Vitamin Essence and swipe across the face from inside to outside and absorb. (For when skin texture feels rough)
2. Vital Vitamin Cream, 50ml (RM135)
Made of the same ingredients as its essence counterpart, the Vital Vitamin cream comes in a water gel formula that quickly absorbs into the skin to brighten and replenish lost moisture. The yellow colour of the cream resembles vitamins and are made out of natural pigments that are completely safe to use. It also contains hyaluronic acid and beta-glucan that work together to form a smooth moisturizing barrier – giving the skin a non-sticky moist finish with a healthy glow.

The Mamonde Vital Vitamin Essence and Cream can be purchased through the Mamonde Beauty Counters at Aeon 1 Utama, PJ, Aeon Mid Valley Megamall, KL, Parkson Suria KLCC, KL, Aeon Bukit Indah, JB, Aeon Tebrau City, JB, Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang and Sephora stores located at Mid Valley Megamall, KL, 1 Utama, PJ, IOI City Mall, Putrajaya, Komtar, Johor Bahru, IMAGO Shopping Mall, KK and Nu Sentral, KL.
