What is invertase? Funny you should ask—we were just about tell you it’s a creaming agent utilized to smoothen a food’s texture.
Chocolate liquor? Why, it’s produced by grinding the cocoa bean into a microscopic size and adding heat from the friction. The cocoa butter in the bean is melted, naturally. This liquefied state containing the cocoa solids and cocoa butter is known as chocolate liquor. Please be assured that it does not contain alcohol. Why? Who’s asking?
How fresh is it? Pearson’s prints a “best before” date on all packaging. Examine the package for a statement that reads “Best Before” or “BB” followed by a traditional date format of the month, day and year. “Best before” dates for the foil-wrapped Mint Patties can be found on the outer package or bag. Happy hunting!
