Our weekly roundup of chocolate related news, politics and products. Catch up with what’s happening every Sunday.
Week 26: June 20–27
Happy Sunday! Let’s look over the previous week and pick out the most delicious of chocolate related news.
Here’s some, uh, news? North Korea’s new airport has chocolate fountains in it. I’m sure everyone will love the airport. It will be the best airport in the world. Very austere and tyrannical I think. All the rage there these days.
You know those articles that go “yet another reason to eat chocolate” when reporting on health related studies? Here’s another one! At this point I’m phoning it in on these.
Looks like Ferraro is going to overtake Lindt for the UK’s fourth most dominant chocolate company by now controlling nearly 7% of the market. Fascinating stuff isn’t it?
Why isn’t this item the first item? Callebaut invents a chocolate that only melts in your mouth. No, it’s not witchcraft: it’s science! They’re not the only ones though, Néstle have also made a chocolate that withstand temperatures up to 40ºC. Finally you’ll never have to worry about these fusing together ever again!
If you like to run you can power this chocolate 3d printer with your stride. This is amazing. Running = chocolate. If they can figure out a way to make peanut butter cookies through walking then I’ll know I’ve died and gone to heaven.
That’s all for this week. Think of the future: where you can jog and make chocolate that doesn’t melt no matter how hot it is outside.
Being the son of a chocolatier Chris has always enjoyed talking about chocolate as much as he loves eating it. He’s an artist and designer as well as a co-founder of the Chocolate Codex.
