Other than people shipping large quantities of chocolate, who doesn't want chocolate to melt? That's kind of the point — melting in your mouth. Or, how about, melting in your pan so you can bake with it?
That hasn't stopped the evil scientists over at Cadbury, the geniuses that brought us those Creme Eggs. They're producing chocolate that doesn't melt and can withstand hot temps! Cray!
They apparently have invented a new Dairy Milk chocolate bar that can withstand up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) for three hours. THREE HOURS! They do this by breaking down sugar particles into smaller pieces, which reduces the amount of fat covering them — making the Dairy Milk able to withstand hot conditions.
Weirdly, this new chocolate will only be available in tropical countries like India and Bazil. We mean, we get it: it's hotter in those countries. It's such a clever tool and gimmick, though, that we'd expect the marketing team to go nuts in other parts of the world too.
Here's what the company says:
"Production of temperature-tolerant chocolate would allow production of chocolate-containing product more suitable for hot climates, particularly in less economically developed countries where the supply chain is ill-equipped to handle temperature fluctuations."
Science — is there anything it can't do?? LOLz!
That is, until we find out this new chocolate causes cancer or something down the road.
