The days of candy bars melting under a hot sun may soon be behind us.
Cadbury recently announced it has developed a variety of melt-resistant chocolate that remains solid even after more than three hours at 104 degrees. Normal chocolate starts to melt at 93 degrees fahrenheit.
Researchers at Cadbury's England plant figured out how to break down the sugar particles into smaller pieces which that cuts the amount of fat covering them, making the pieces more "temperature tolerant."
Cadbury, owned by Kraft, reportedly plans to sell the heat resistant chocolate in countries with hot climates like india and brazil.
