Cadbury Confirms That Its Chocolate Should Be Kept In The Cupboard
Where to keep your chocolate is a debate that divides families and friends. Is it the fridge or the cupboard?
Well, the debate seems to have been settled by the folks over at Cadbury Australia who have given their ruling on where their bars should be stored.
And it's sad news for all those - me included - who make sure their chocolate treats are kept at an icy temperature.
After coming up with a 'definitive' list of items that need to be left in either a cupboard or a fridge, Twitter user Bruno decided to put it to the confectionery giant.
They wrote: "The 100 percent accurate and definitive list of what does and does NOT go in the fridge. Don't bother commenting, this isn't up for discussion."
Adding: "Yo @CadburyAU ... what's the definitive ruling on chocolate storage? Fridge or room temp?"
Responding to the query, Cadbury gave its verdict, saying: "Chocolate should always be stored in a slightly cool, dry, dark place such as cupboard or pantry at temperatures less than 21°C to ensure the quality isn't compromised."

But the answer obviously didn't please everyone, and there were plenty of outraged followers who just couldn't accept it.
Responding to the tweet, one person said: "I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree."
While other Aussies pointed out that it's pretty hard to find a cupboard or pantry that will stay cool enough to protect the structural integrity of their chocolate bars.
"It's hard when the chocolate melts," wrote on.
Echoing these concerns, another commented: "My point exactly.... I know my kitchen cupboard doesn't sit below 21 degrees."
To which the original user added: "I don't think anywhere in QLD sits below 21 degrees, The chocolate goes in the fridge out of necessity."
However, there are bigger issues raised from Bruno's list than where chocolate should be kept. Like, what the hell is he doing putting peanut butter in the fridge? And olive oil? And why is the champagne in the cupboard?
We need answers.
