  • Lindor chocolates - why are they cold?

    Can anyone explain the science of it to me (gently? ) please?

    I am just trialling the little eggs but tbh they don't have the same effect as the bigger round ones, as they have less filling so are not as cold.

    i wish I understood!

    I don't know but they are so bloody good.

      Have they been in the fridge? Can't think why else a food would be cold.


      Disclaimer - never had them so don't really know what you're talking about.

          No, MrsB, they are round chocolate balls with a softer chocolate inside, and it always tastes cold on the inside. There may well be a well-known explanation but I don't want to ruin the magic by googling They truly are delicious

              Aha, you learn a new thing every day. Just as well I don't like chocolate otherwise I'd have to go out and buy some to test your theory!

                I'd guess that the specific heat capacity of the internals is lower than the external chocolate so it feels colder by difference.

                Taste nice what every.

                      Ooh yes Peony! Is that to do with little chocolate bits running round at different speeds in the outside hard casing and soft middle, so some kind of energy thing? I think that could be it!

                        Possibly something to do with the ratio of soft to hard in the larger ones v's the smaller ones is why the small ones don't have the same effect.

                        DH said he's never noticed but he scoff them whole. Do you eat the small ones whole? Maybe different parts of the tongue can detect the difference? I have noticed the aledged temperature difference with the larger ones though.

                          Just wiki'd it and had an exam flashback.

                            I've noticed this too! It's apparently because they contain a substance called invert sugar which causes a chemical reaction on your tongue making it feel cold.

                            Thanks wiki!

                            The dark ones are the last thing I want to eat before I die.

                              I love these but have never noticed! Must be because I wolf them down so quickly!
