Why Top Deck Chocolate tastes better melted and then re-solidified
In this essay, I will argue why Top Deck chocolate tastes better when it’s melted in the microwave, cooled and placed in the fridge to re-solidify for a few hours. In this essay, I will focus on the three reasons why my thesis is correct—white/milk chocolate distribution, texture and temperature when it is eventually consumed.
After Top Deck chocolate is melted in the microwave, it is best to cool it on the kitchen sink prior to placing it in the fridge to re-solidify. While it is cooling, but before it is completely cooled, it is necessary to stir the melted chocolate. When the chocolate is stirred, the white/milk chocolate distribution changes as the white/milk chocolate is no longer solid and can be moved in any direction. This change allows for a multi-layered and balanced sugar, white and milk chocolate tasting experience and therefore an enhanced chocolate tasting experience.
Top Deck chocolate has been made in a 3D block structure with flat milk chocolate and raised white chocolate squares on top of the milk chocolate. When the chocolate is melted, it is of a liquid structure, however during the cooling and stirring stage, the texture of the chocolate when it is eventually re-solidified can be changed to suit the consumer’s preferences. For example, a consumer can rotate the spoon over the bowl so the chocolate drips over the top and forms either lumps or patterns, which can vary the final solidified texture and enhance the taste and consumption experience.
After the chocolate has been in the fridge for a few hours, it has been solidified and therefore can be consumed. However depending on how many hours it has been in the fridge it can be quite cold and hard to eat. It is best enjoyed when it has been sitting at room temperature for at least half-an-hour so it melts slightly and melts in the mouth. The longer it is sitting at room temperature, the softer the chocolate becomes, I personally enjoy it when it has been at room temperature for at least half-an-hour or when the bowl is no longer cold, whichever comes first, as it is soft, melts in the mouth but has not completely melted. Whatever temperature is best to enjoy the chocolate at, depends on the preferences of the consumer and what kind of taste experience or enhancement in taste experience they are looking for.
In conclusion, Top Deck chocolate tastes better when it’s melted in the microwave, cooled and placed in the fridge to re-solidify for a few hours, as it provides alternative ways for the consumer to enjoy the chocolate and provides an enhanced taste experience.
