Food experts at Cadbury's have developed a new type of chocolate that doesn't melt in hot weather.

An achievement even Willy Wonka himself would be envious of, the new non-melting chocolate is being hailed as an end to the problems encountered by chocolate lovers in warmer climates. The new Dairy Milk bars will remain solid even if left for several hours in temperatures of up to 104F. Cadbury's hope to sell the new product in countries such as India and Brazil.

The chocolate is created by adapting the process that grinds up all the ingredients so that the sugar is reduced to smaller particles which are in turn covered in less fat which means the end result is less prone to melting.

"Food scientists working at Cadbury's research plant in Bournville, near Birmingham, claim their new Dairy Milk bars will remain solid even when left in 104F (40C) heat for three hours."

If you're chocolate has time to melt you're not doing it right :-p I don't really know where to go with this without risking a ban. lol let me know when they invent non-melting ice. that would be useful They already have, my room mate has a bunch of it in the freezer. Never tried it myself. I've always wanted to try some of those stainless steel ice cubes though.

Chocolate in a can is sure to follow. Just like Cheez Whiz, how can that be real cheese if it doesn't have to be refrigerated? It is all hyperreality. A fast food meal, meat, bun, is fake, most of it is corn syrup.

So are Brazil and India the hottest countries in the World? The human body is 37.5c, unless in Brazil and India they differ from the rest of the World. This gives a whole new meaning to "s... ..... bricks" TOO RIGHT!!
