A 2-bar pack of  Glucose Molecular Chocolates  (Turn on your Glycolysis) Dark chocolate (70%) with figs 50g. Glucose is a sugar and a main product of photosynthesis, a sunlight triggered chemical reaction in plants and some bacteria. It is a source of energy for many organisms, and human cells transform it into carbon dioxide and water with release of energy in the process called glycolysis. Glucose got a lot of bad press in the past years BUT it is a crucial source of energy for brain and driver of out metabolic processes. GLUCOSE molecular chocolate is nicely balancing the amount of glucose by mixing the dark chocolate with dry figs.

Chocolates, which were first developed to make chemistry sweet and fun, soon became very popular due to the quality of the ingredients which were adapted to the molecule they feature. First edition contains four different chocolates each containing little snippet of the information about the molecule it features as well as the QR code to the 3D representation of the molecule.

This is the first time they are on sale in UK, although they have been featured in the official University of Cambridge cafes.
