The Last Word In Business

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
And our last word in business is: Hot chocolate.
Not the kind you drink on a wintery day, but the kind you eat in the sizzling tropics. The snack company Mondelez says it's perfecting a process to make chocolate unmeltable - even in temperatures above 100 degrees. The Deerfield, Illinois company says this new innovation will help it sell chocolate in emerging markets with hot climates and limited refrigeration, like sub Saharan Africa.
Good for sales, but not so great - we suspect - for that other great American chocolate innovation, melted on the campfire, s'mores.
