New Chocolate Candy Beats the Heat

M&Ms may need a new slogan. "Melts in your mouth, not in your hands" could become old news soon, as Cadbury introduces a "temperature-tolerant chocolate," the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports, for its new candy, Dairy Milk. The chocolate in the new bars can apparently sit out in really hot temperatures -- 104-degrees -- for three-plus hours before it losing its solid state. Cadbury, the British brand, which bought by Kraft a couple years ago, has upped the melting point of regular chocolate (93 degrees). Alas, England, with its temperate climate, won't be seeing the chocolate any time soon.read more
