Has the flavour of your favourite chocolate changed?

Could it be that the recipe is still the same, but it has changed its shape.

Absolutely, say scientists, chocolatiers and chefs. Shape determines how quickly chocolate melts in the mouth and this determines the order and speed different food molecules are released on to the tongue and into the nose. Because Dairy Milk has changed shape it will melt differently in the mouth, potentially changing the release of molecules from its ingredients, and thus its flavour.


For gawds sake, it's a simple chocolate bar, not a worldwide PhD scientific experiment.

I think this boils down to; Manufacturers please stop fiddling with stuff we already like.

My Mother always liked Yellow Roses, I even gave Her a few live plants, only a few invasive weeds grown from trees strangled them, Mother also liked Purple Lilacs too.
