Should i keep dating him
It's the age old question that has been dividing foodies for generations: Should chocolate be kept at room temperature or chilled in the fridge?And according to one chocolate judge, those who answered the with the latter are incorrect.Speaking to Stuff, New Zealand based chocolate expert and judge, Luke Owen Smith, said that even in a heat wave, it's best to avoid storing chocolate in the fridge at all costs.Mr Owen, who owns The Chocolate Bar and is widely known for his monthly boxes of quality craft chocolate bars, said that chocolate stored in the fridge becomes 'dull' and 'doesn't release the flavours'.

This occurs when it’s chilled then exposed to warmer air.
It causes condensation on the surface, dissolving some of the sugar, which recrystallises as a grainy, white coating.
Chocolate also absorbs odours, so there’s a risk it will end up smelling - and tasting - like last night’s leftovers. 'Chocolate with a creamy filling is likely to be at higher risk of going off and needs refrigeration,' she said.
To avoid condensation, do not cover hot meat pieces before refrigerating.
Place them uncovered in the refrigerator until they are cool, then cover the container or wrap the meat tightly with cling wrap.
