Cadbury patent chocolate that refuses to melt
Cadbury have gone and filed a patent for a chocolate treat that refuses to melt. Even at stupid temperatures like 40 degrees Celsius. They're hoping it'll sell in tropical countries, but you have to wonder what it'd be like having chocolate on your tongue while it doesn't even begin to melt.
It'd surely be like sucking on a chocolate flavoured ice-hockey puck?
Cadbury said the secret to the non-melting chocolate is to reduce the fat content, and of course, they've already got different recipes for warmer climates (get your hands on an Australian equivalent of a Freddo and it'll be chalkier because it is designed not to die in hot weather).
However, Cadbury reckon they've found a way to cut fat without losing texture or taste.
"We have found it is possible to instil more favourable temperature tolerant properties into a chocolate," a spokesman said.
But will it lie in your guts forever, like Asbestos in your lungs?
