Default Chocolate does not taste good.....

when it is put in a fruit cup glued together with E6000. I made 8 fruit cups, and was told that E6000 worked to seal the bottoms of the cans. Well let me tell you, it sealed them real good, but the chocolate tastes just like the glue. I just happened to open one to see what it would look like if I received one myself. Boy would I have been embarrassed to give these ones to sombody. Glad I checked! I am not disheartened though, I will just have to break down and buy the Crystal Effects, which is probably what I should have done in the first place

Has anybody else had this happen to them? Do you have any fumes from the CE? I really want to make some of these, but not if they are going to smell bad when they are opened.

What a waste of chocolate! Thanks for the warning!

I steered away purposefully from E-6000 because of it's odor. Hadn't thought about it changing the flavor of the chocolate, I just know that the E-6000 lingers a long time when left out in the open, not to mention what it must be like inside a sealed can.

The CE doesn't smell at all. If you've never used it, you just have to try it. It puts a great finish on stamping too!

I used a super-glue clone to glue the bottom on my fruit cup (only made one so far!). I had put some licorice in the cup and it didn't seem to make it taste weird at all. Of course, I had my husband open it about 10 minutes after I made it!!!!

Just an alternative to CE...

I had to share. Your story of the awful chocolate remind me of my daughter's Easter basket. My mom spent a bundle on a pre-wrapped basket from Costco one year. It had a stuffed rabbit, and lots of chocolate and candy. We had to throw it out because all the food tasted like the varnish on the basket. I guess we should have taken it back now that I think about it.
Thanks for the head up.

Brush on Krazy Glue. You figure if you can eat off plates that have been repared with it, it isn't going to hurt the chocolate inside a fruit cup. Oh the sacrilidge!! (sorry, non-chocolate person here ) I made a bunch ~ see gallery ~ and used Krazy Glue because I knew it would dry and CE takes FOREVER to dry.

Do we consider this a Chocolate Crime?
I recall "Beer Crimes" being committed in my earlier days....someone would crack a beer & not drink it, therefore committing a Beer Crime not normally discovered until clean up the next day.
I'm amazed I remembered that one ~ short term memory hey ~

you don't know how painful it was to throw almost a whole bag of peanut butter cups away. It's a good thing I ate a few while I was making the things, or else it would have been a complete waste.
Yes, I would consider this a Chocolate Crime!
