flexible chocolate

went to an interesting talk tonight by prof. malcolm mackley who applied things he learnt with polymers called cold extrusions (eg, forcing solid things out of a small aperature to make them appear flexible) to chocolate!


the resulting chocolate looks like spaghetti. in this picture you see the chocolate tied in a knot! apparently there is some engineering and science behind this, enough to do some research and patenting! i wonder what would happen if you could do the same with ice cream. imagine ice cream spaghetti .. mmm .. i can just imagine the suitcases of cash i can earn :) hahaha .. too bad its all patented!

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
