For years, the tagline for M&Ms candies has been, “Melts in your mouth, not in your hands” — anyone who’s ever seen a small child’s face and hands all smeary with half-eaten chocolate can understand why such sentiment might appeal. Now, however, thanks to researchers at Cadbury Chocolate in England, those messy days may be a thing of the past.
The Daily Mail reported this week that scientists at the company’s recently opened research-and-development facility in the village of Bournville in Birmingham, England, have created “temperature-tolerant chocolate,” which resists melting.
The key to the modified treat lies in grinding the sugar used to produce chocolate into smaller particles, resulting in less fat coverage of the grains. Cadbury tested different particle sizes and varied the fat content during the development process to find out what combinations produced optimal heat resistance.
