My father send package to us. Inside it was chocolate powder. drink but also in a box there was a toilet soap together with the chocolate powder drink. When I make that chocolate drink it tasted like soap. Maybe because of the smell of the soap. Is it safe to drink it? What should I do? Is there any way to remove that taste from the drink. Thanks a lot.

It is probably not safe to drink the chocolate drink. Soap should not be near food since the food will absorb the taste. I remember a neighbor gave me a piece of coffee cake when I was a child that tasted like soap. I was polite and ate it but it tasted awful. I told her I was thirsty and gulped a drink down to get rid of the bad taste.

Is the chocolate powder drink pack in its own packaging, which is seperated from the soap? If that's the case, it does not matter if both of them are packed together in the same box so long as the drink does not come into direct contact with the soap.. hehe IF the smell really bothers u, i guess u might have to throw it away because there's no way to remove the smell at all

Hi angelbelle, it's not appropriate to place foods and other inedible stuffs together in the same package. As what we have seen in the hypermarket or other outlets the cashier at the counter usually will place edible and inedible stuffs in different plastic bags. So the edible goods won't get the smell or other disgusting effects from them. I don't drink the chocolate for sure as the nasty smell of the toilet soap has spoiled the aroma of the chocolate. What for to take drink that has lost its original aromatic savor. It seems like drinking beverage prepared from toilet soap instead of chocolate I don't think there is any suitable way to remove the toilet soap smell from the powder. Happy posting

Reason why the chocolate has the soap aroma is because of the perfume substance of the soap it very potent. You can not remove it and I would advice you not to drink it as I do not feel it would be safe.
