Strict Requirement of Lava technology
The production process is extremely demanding as to control the right amount of Lava filling. If the flow of the filling is too “flowing”, the flow will be absorbed by other fillings, which will affect the taste. If it is too thick, it will cause the filling to condense and lose the effect of the Lava.
