PEOPLE are only just realising why it’s impossible to melt a Cadbury Flake – and it has blown their minds.
Chocoholics have been left dumbfounded trying to melt the iconic bars over a stove or in the microwave.
But it turns out Flakes refuse to melt into a pool of hot and creamy chocolate.

One chocoholic advised that adding a bit of butter or milk to a flake when trying to melt it in the microwave will do the trick.
Another added: “It melts in your hands because the oils rehydrate it.
“Same with your mouth and saliva.”
According to the chocolatier: “The process for making the Flake is a closely guarded secret.
