Silicon Valley is home to some of the brightest minds in the nation, with many using modern technology to help advance society. Of course not every invention can change the world, but that doesn’t mean they’re not necessary. An engineer recently decided to take on something no one thought needed improvement, chocolate chips, and somehow made them better.

Remy Labesque, a Los-Angeles based engineer working for Tesla, reengineered the way chocolate chips are made, as he claims his chocolate chips taste better and melt better. “The standard way that everyone makes chocolate chips is that it’s deposited off the [factory> line, but that’s not the best way to taste it,” said Labesque. The engineer went to the drawing board, attempting to come up with different shapes for his new chocolate chips.

“We found that if you take a huge chunk of chocolate and put it in your mouth, that taste can be overwhelming. The flat shape helps slow down the experience,” said Todd Masonis, co-founder of San Francisco’s Dandelion Chocolate, where the chips are sold. $30 gets 17.6 ounces of chocolate, or about 142 chips. This is proof silicon valley is always hard at work.
