Cadbury Launches Heat-Resistant Chocolate
While M&M's might be the candy that's supposed to "melt in your mouth, not your hand," the classic chocolates might get a new competitor in the form of new Cadbury science-y chocolates.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the chocolate maker has filed a patent for a new chocolate that can be heated to 104 degrees for three hours and still remain solid.
"If pressed with a finger, it does not stick nor has the consistency of a molten product," the application said. Researchers reportedly discovered a way to break down sugar particles, reducing the amount of fat coating the particles. This reduces the amount of melting, although with pressure the chocolate can be broken.
Cadbury plans to sell these chocolates in hotter climates, the LA Times reports, meaning finding chocolate stains on your kids' clothes might be an issue of the past. Also, no more sticky fingers. Now we just have to worry about the taste.
