comment Test if whitish chocolate has bloom or is spoiled
I believe that when it happened to my friend, it was because it had been stored in a plastic container in the fridge (which was maybe not entirely clean). This, or maybe forgetting the container on the bottom of the fridge for several months...

comment Test if whitish chocolate has bloom or is spoiled
Indeed, that is a simple and convincing technique. So if after wiping the finger I still have some powdery substance which does not dissolve in water, then it's certainly mold. Right? Or could it happen that the mold might eventually dissolve? I'm expecting it should feel a bit like a Camembert cheese...

comment Why is there no sweet (as in 'with sugar') butter?
Just to add another thought that led me to my question, I often see tomato sauce as having both salt and sugar added to it, and I thought both would help conserve it. Besides, tomato is an example of something that can be made both sweet (as juice) and salty (as sauce), so I considered generalizing it to other things such as butter: why not some sugar butter for people who love their popcorn both sweet and buttered?

I was actually thinking about cheese that have sugar added during the fabrication process - but I'm not sure that would work.

Could sugar have some preserving effect as well? Such as in applesauce? Or is it just the removal of water that actually helps conserving it? I was thinking if, at least chemically, such a "sweet butter" could be meaningful.
