    Because Hershey’s add Butyric Acid to their confectionary, which is the primary compound that gives vomit its distinctively acrid smell.
    [–]boomerxl 43 points 1 year ago
    It’s worse than just adding something. They deliberately sour the milk before adding the chocolate solids so that the chocolate has a longer shelf life. That’s what releases the Butyric acid.
    The U.K. And Ireland tend to use chocolate crumb reconstituted with fresh milk, which has a shorter shelf life but has the added advantage of not tasting like a toddler just spat up in your mouth.

    It was originally added during WWII to make chocolate too disgusting to want to eat, so they needn’t worry about people complaining the chocolate ration was too low.
    But Americans instead just got used to the taste.

    – the process that Hersheys use to make their chocolate produces butyric acid, which is the same chemical that gives vomit its smell,

    other american chocolate makers add it, to imitate the great taste of Hershey.

    I wonder what a vomited up Hershey Bar smells like…

    …and of course:

    gross about the Hershey’s…here is some made in Canada good chocolate…hedgehogs, I may have posted before:

    reviewsIntroduced in the early 1990s, Purdys Hedgehogs are a customer favourite. The smooth, hazelnut gianduja filling is tucked inside a milk chocolate hedgehog shell.

  10. interiorbc says :

    I’ll bet bru has access to some lovely chocolates…

    Well i hope pneumonia won’t carry you off for a bit Cyan, but it’s no joke. You’re unlikely to get it written about in the Guardian though, because it’s not got a pressure group behind it.

    My doc asked me if wanted to be screened for an aneurysm recently. I said no, I tend to assume I’ll die of heart disease/a stroke, given the fantastic rates of said ailments in my family, but I don’t want to know in advance that there’s something waiting to pop in my head.

    Anyway, let’s cheer ourselves up with some exercises.

    Are hedgehogs a popular Easter theme in Canada Inty?

    We got an Easter card at work depicting the crucified Christ which caused some expressions of horror…..but apparently Easter cards are a thing now. And Easter trees.

  13. xenium1 says :

    Ah, Hayley Bailey… 🙂

  14. interiorbc says :

    not particularly polly, it’s just that Purdy’s make good chocolates, and hedgehogs are cute, although they are not in the wild here…

    hedgehogs are one of their best selling theme chocolates…

  15. interiorbc says :

    Speaking of Julie Walters (along with Helen Mirren and a host of others), saw this the other day, great film!

  16. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Evening All, hope no-one has shuffled off stage left pursued by anything ….

    Dunstable, eh? In a car, eh?

    Lovely flowers, Inty, they must be duck eggs, I’m guessing.

  17. cyanbloo says :

    don’t worry fiddy i was just reflecting on the nature of my inevitable demise but i fully intend that to be off in the as distant as possible future.

    how you doin’?

  18. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    I’m ok, Cyan, ta. I always thought it would be the heart that carried me off, no known “big C” in either side of the family before me, dicky as anything tickers, though and fhc. I take the view that they do the best they can for you given current knowledge, it moves on, it takes twists. I also smile at headlines like “You’re 75% less likely to die if you eat this/do that”. No, you’ll be just as dead but possibly at a different time and of a different cause. 😉 x

  19. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    I am pondering on leaving my cadaver to medical science but you have to sign up to a school – I’m thinking Cardiff and hoping they’ll want me. Not yet, for a while, but eventually. When they’ve done with you they give a decent and free funeral to the bits of you that aren’t in jars.

  20. cyanbloo says :

    yeah i have always fancied trying to make myself useful after i’ve popped it, i shall have to look into it.

  21. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Oh, you have to have died of something quite healthy, though. Reasons they won’t take you:

    Transmissible disease: for example, Hepatitis, HIV, Septicaemia, Clostridium, MRSA; Tuberculosis; Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease or Parkinsons Disease (Vascular dementia is acceptable; Jaundice: Of infective origin; Widespread cancer throughout the bones or abdomen; Internal bleeding or severe circulatory problems

    And why they might not:

    MS (Multiple Sclerosis): Depending on the severity of the condition, cases of MS may or may not be suitable; Severe bedsores or varicose ulcers: Small sores may be acceptable, but deep sores are not; Peripheral vascular disease and peripheral oedema; Recent operations where the wound has not healed; Amputation of more than one limb; Arthritic deformity: Severe deformity of joints and spine; Obesity/Size: Excessive weight or height; Cancer: Depending on type/severity.

    Picky, aren’t they? 😉

    Hi Polly

    Have you actually been banned from cif of put in pre-mod ?

    Whichever it is you can always appeal.I know a couple of posters who’ve been banned and have negotiated their way back legitimately rather than take on a new identity.If it’s just a pre-mod you can still appeal and unless you’ve got form they should lift it in a couple of days.

    Try and live for the moment Cyan 🙂
