Do you prefer your chocolate from the fridge or at room temperature?
It's World Chocolate Day!
It’s time to get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues…
It is not refrigerated in-store but many of us keep our supplies of the delicious brown stuff in the fridge once we bring it home. Others don’t see the point of it.
Is there a right and wrong way to store your chocolate at home? Is it a personal preference and does everyone who lives in the same house share the same taste?
Should chilled chocolate come to room temperature before you eat it? Does cold chocolate melt and disperse flavour as nicely as room temperature chocolate? And possibly, more importantly, can your teeth cope with chilled chocolate straight from the fridge?
So many unanswered questions …
What are your views? Do you prefer your chocolate chilled or at room temperature? Or should we have a product-by-product assessment?
What are your views?
We'd love to hear your comments
