Camel's milk chocolate coming to the west

Al Nassma, a Dubai-based camel's milk chocolate company is planning to export its wares overseas to the US and UK. No word on whether any of the enslaved South Asian workers who make the stuff have fallen in the vats.

With 3,000 camels on its Dubai farm, the company sells chocolates through its farm-attached store as well as in luxury hotels and private airlines. It plans to launch an online shopping facility within a month, Van Almsick said. The farm is controlled by the Dubai government…

"We aim to be the Godiva [ed: Ew. Aim higher, camel chocolate man!] of the Middle East," Van Almsick said in an interview. "It's a luxury product, so we will never be in supermarkets. The plan is to be in one mall in each UAE city."
