    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!

    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.

    Re: Lindor chocolates - why are they cold?

    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!

    Re: Lindor chocolates - why are they cold?

    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.

    Re: Lindor chocolates - why are they cold?

    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.

    Re: Lindor chocolates - why are they cold?

    Yes I think definitely the bigger ones you notice the ratio of inside to outside more - I put them in whole but they conveniently break into two across the join. It seems to be all about the differential

    Intriguing anyway! I am going to need a lot more packets, just for the purposes of experimentation, you understand...

    I've not tried these but those little chocs you get in mini foil cupcake cases were always cold too, weird!

    I think I may need to buy some to try them out And maybe the ones in the foil cases too - saw them in the old-fashioned sweet shop the other day
