eutectic imitation cocoa butter

eutectic imitation cocoa butter makes good candy.
  [vote for,

Used here I use the word eutectic to mean two or three chemically different solids that when they combine have a lower melting temperature than any member fat. Combine stiff long fatty acids together to make something that melts in your mouth, but better than chocolate does.

Seriously now though, crummy cheap palm oil chocolate does not have the mouth feel of cocoa butter because perhaps the melting point is different. This at least adds another texture of chocolate without being chocolate.

       [a1]; if you read the tabloids, it would seem that pretty much ALL existing foods are Bad. For something to be considered "healthy", it must be NEW! </sarcasm>

       Higher markups and profit margins on the inferior substitutes.

       Also, this substitute cocoa butter will be awful, allowing the opportunity for a very-slightly-less-awful version to be launched in a few months' time as a "new, improved!" product

       The "new improved" formulation will be ever so slightly cheaper to produce, will be sold at a slightly higher price point to allow even greater profits. And won't actually taste any better.

       It will also have a colourful sticker on the front of the packet, reading "Guaranteed Benzene-free!"

       Will the new, improved product have 20% fewer calories per serving and be quite coincidentally 20% lighter?

       shall we call it *cocoa margarine*?
