Could these be used as chocolate chips?

fluffy says:

Another technique I’ve seen for doing this is to make a flavored gelatin or tapioca, and then drip the still-not not-yet-set gel into chilled grapeseed oil, which causes the gel to rapidly set.

sygyzy says:

How strong is the flavor? In my experience, and from research, it seems like anything that is spherified (sp?) has a very muted flavor.
