    Scientists Develop Chocolate That Won't Melt At High Temperatures

    One of life's less pleasant surprises is discovering the chocolate bar that you forgot you had in your pocket on a hot day. Two scientists working at Cadbury's research and development plant in Bourneville, U.K., are fighting that gooey surprise with the invention of chocolate that remains solid even when exposed to temperatures of 40 C (104 F) for more than three hours. Aimed at tropical markets, the 'temperature tolerant chocolate' is described in a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) patent application.

    WTF is the point of that?

    It won't melt and be delicious in your mouth either.

    Apparently there is a market for it in the tropics.

    Maybe you could keep it in your mouth and suck on it forever. It would be like an everlasting gobstopper.

    I remember having chocolate disks in the C rations we ate in the 80's. The chocolate was a mix of chocolate and parafin.... and tasted like it too..... That would be 1 market for a high temp chocolate.
