Swiss company unveils 'unmeltable' chocolate

A company in Switzerland has come up with a unique new recipe for chocolate that is very hard to melt.
Conventional chocolate is fine until it gets too warm and melts all over your hands, but now Barry Callebaut, the world's largest wholesale chocolate seller, has come up with a new type of luxury chocolate that will remain solid at any temperature below 38 degrees Celsius.

Designed to help the company break in to new markets, the new product has been described as a "game changer" - especially when it comes to selling it in countries where consistently high temperatures make conventional chocolate products more difficult to store and transport.
"You remove all kinds of barriers for your customers," said chief executive Antoine de Saint-Affrique. "You can transport it more easily. Therefore you can have a different kind of reach."

Whether the new chocolate will prove to be a hit with consumers however remains to be seen.

Probably the same ingredients as Viagra. Is Viagra unmeltable too? I am not sure about this unmelting chocolate, I like it dribbling down my chin on a hot summer day, its seems more natural that way.

I don't know if a 4 deg difference is significant, but apparently it is. All I know is that once I had some Hershey kisses in my pants pocket, forgot about them, then remembered them and reached for one. A gooey mess all over my hand and pocket. I'm pretty sure this also happened to me with a partial chocolate bar in my pocket. No jokes please

Mars took care of this years ago with the candy coating on M&M's. With the temperature required to melt the "Chocolate", there goes the slow savoring of a piece in you mouth as it candy slowly melts.

Interesting to draw parallels between Viagra and chocolate. Some recent research has suggested that about 30 Calories of dark chocolate may affect mild high blood pressure. And, Viagra or sildenafil citrate was originally developed to treat high blood pressure and angina. I suppose, either way, our spirits can indeed by elevated when it's hot.

Tells me it's luxury but doesn't tell me the ingredients. Cannot trust. So it won't melt even on a hot day, but how does it compare to other chocolate in taste and texture in cooler climes?

Tells me it's luxury but doesn't tell me the ingredients. Cannot trust. Colonel Sanders kept his ingredients a secret too but that never stopped me from enjoying that finger lickin' goodness.

Gross, that means it won't melt in my mouth. What's the point? Half of chocolate is the texture
