Valentine’s Day in the Future

Well, at least what scientists are telling us how chocolate will change in the future…

2014Melt-Proof Wrappers. Candy companies are developing wrappers that prevent chocolate from melting in temperatures up to 104 degrees.

20163D Chocolate Printer. Using edible purees in place of ink, engineers have created a printer that creates totally edible forms.

2018Low-Fat Chocolate. Through selective breeding of cacao trees, scientists hope to grow beans with less fat.

2021Cookie-Baking Robot. Scientists have created a robot that can mix up a batch of cookies and pop them in the oven; it takes 2 1/2 hours currently.

2032$20 Candy Bars. Some industry experts say the world is running out of affordable chocolate, primarily because of declining production.

The delicious (except for the final one) tidbits above came from the Food Network Magazine March 2012 issue.

I hope you have enjoyed these enticing chocolate posts (start here to see the whole series) on Valentine’s Day 2012!

Now, it’s off for a late dessert date with my Valentine!
