In Japanese Game Show, Celebrities Eat Random Objects That Might Be Chocolate

Chomp on an object that you see everyday around you, and it just might be a chocolate, or it might be what it looks like. Japanese sokkuri (‘look alike’) sweets are desserts that look like everyday objects. Recently on a game show, celebrities and participants were asked to bite everyday objects; some of which were desserts, and others were exactly what they looked like.

Chocolate Packaging Especially Suited for Valentine’s Day

A student group in Acukland, New Zealand was given the task of creating a new packaging for Whittakers’ chocolate bars. They chose to follow the idea of a superhero, but not just any superhero, but the “Everyday Hero.” Yep, they made the average joe was made a superhero, and that clearly shows on the packaging of these chocolate bars. Yeah, they’d be good everyday, but since Valentine’s is at hand and a lot of people are going to buy chocolates anyway, this seems a great choice.

Chocolate Bed Toppings Reach Really Sweet Dreams

We can all be unanimous in the thought that chocolates are awesome. Sleeping on a chocolate bed is super cool and just one step short of living in a gingerbread house, and being in a house way better than what Hansel and Grethel saw. That part seems to be a bit far off, so we’ll settle with chocolate bed toppings for now, even if they be non-edible and yet super expensive at $284.

Edible chocolate record should play the most tempting tunes ever

Chocolate has a way of making things better, and its inventive use is just the icing on the cake. Chocolatier Ben Milne worked with Scottish band FOUND to make a record that would play on chocolate. The delicious-sounding idea was a pain to execute, but Ben finally managed to get it right using the template used to press actual vinyl, which was provided by the band’s studio. Only, in place of pressing vinyl, the template was working on a 7-inch record. It appears that the band has plans to release a limited edition run of these chocolate records for their next album.
