Chocolates Taste Like Soap
by Freda Morrison
What makes chocolates taste like soap?
When I make my chocolates I always make a few extra for samples. I chop up the samples but after a few days the samples have a slight soapy taste.
I'm not sure if it's because I keep them in plastic containers or p/bags but the chocolates themselves are fine. I chop with a sharp knife and they are fine for a day or so.
That IS strange. Do you store the chocolate anywhere near soap or scented candles or anything that has a strong smell? That would be my first guess.
I don't know what else would cause the chocolate to taste soapy. Are you referring to plain chocolate or are you using flavorings or colorings in the chocolate? It could be something you are adding that is causing the change in taste.
Does anyone else have any ideas or suggestions?
