It's so hot in Texas today, my chocolate bars are melting.

You can't just pay for your candy bars and expect them not to melt while you drive back home, if you live in Texas, that is.

I wanted to buy a case of those new Snickers Bars with Almond. They are very good. Like Mars Bars.

But If I bought a case of them, and drove all the way back home, I am afraid they would be melted before I got back so I thought about bringing along an ice chest full of ice.

Taking the case of candy bars and placing it in the middle of an ice chest would be a good idea only if they were to fit they would have to be individually placed, out of the case so the ice would surround them completely and by the time I got home I might have prevented them from melting only they would all be wet.

There is no better thing to do than to have a refrigerator hooked up to your car via the cigarette lighter to get power from the 12 volt DC car battery to place in the back seat and have it running. But they don't make refrigerators for cars. At least I don't think they do.

Bottom line? I would have to drive over the speed limit to get my case of candy bars home before they melted.

There may be a better way to do this but then, maybe I should just have one single bar and enjoy it without worrying about how I get back home with a case of them before they melt. It's not rocket science but it is science. Candy melts so you have to consider global climate change. HOw dOes this make things easy for people who like chocolate bars who buy in bulk?

I never even considered buying chocolate bars in bulk. Why? I would eat them in very short time! We have a car cooler that plugs into the cigarette lighter socket in the car. The cooler has two freezer packs which you freeze in your home freezer before setting out. Then the plug in keeps the cooler chilled for longer. Here's an example of something similar. http://amzn.to/2uDtB8R NOTE: that is an affiliate link.
