Scientists have investigated the weird reason Flake chocolate bars will not melt
If there’s one thing we all know, it’s that on a hot day, your choccy bar is gonna melt. Yeah, nah, in summer, that s**t’s a nightmare in warm climates. You think you’re about to chow down on your lunchtime snack when all of a sudden you find out it’s now a drink. Mostly. Yeah, it fair dinkum turns out that buying a Cadbury Flake might solve that problem. Check it out…
All right, we’ll admit that when we first heard this, we thought, yeah nah, that’s bulls**t.
Apparently, though, it’s not. Nah, it’s fair dinkum gospel.
The theory was put to the test by the Thompson STEM Engagement YouTube channel. According to presenter Tony Thompson, they wanted to ‘investigate the weird super-power.’
To make that happen, they ran a few simple comparisons. Obviously, we’re not gonna detail the whole lot here for you because it’s in the video, but we’ve gotta say that we’re f**ken shocked by this news.
Despite placing it in a bain-marie, a microwave, a frying pan, and eventually blasting it with a blowtorch, they couldn’t melt the f**ker. And look, for clarity’s sake, it will burn, but it won’t f**ken melt.
According to Science Focus, that’s because the manufacturing process of the Flake is a bit different to most Cadbury chocolates. Apparently, its ingredients are all f**ked up and the fat isn’t able to lubricate the cocoa particles to the point where they flow.
So yeah, now you know. If it’s a f**ken scorcher and you’re hankering for a choccy bar, go for a flake. It won’t melt on you.
Final thought: Yeah, we’ve gotta admit we’re surprised by this. What other little factoids have you f**kers got about common foods that we might not be aware of? Share ‘em in the comments section. See you there!
