Back in October 2013, Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer appealed to his fans via Twitter, asking them which sporting celebrity they would like to see him take on. Ever rapid on social media, American skiing champion Lindsey Vonn quickly responded saying that she would happily play Federer at tennis if he would ski against her.
Wow, looks like we’ll have to summon a whole lot of guts to eat these chocolate skulls by Manchester-based Etsy seller BlackChocolateCo: not only are they anatomically accurate and true to life-size, they are also hand cast from a mould of an actual human skull. Uh huh, that’s credibility.
Love art? Got a craving for chocolate? You’ll love these edible art supplies. Design studio Nendo created these ‘oil paints’ which aren’t paints at all, but rather chocolates filled with delicious syrups. The studio has already created edible art supplies before, too, with their chocolate-shaped pencils a few years back. Seriously, what can be more […]
Chocoholics, your wish of a chocolate room has come true! Scottish artist Anya Gallaccio created this new installation named Stroke at Jupiter Artland in Edinburgh. And yes, if you dare, you may lick the walls. Here’s what Jupiter Artland had to say about the installation: ‘The entire room is covered in thick dark chocolate, lightly […]
Poor Pluto, even in culinary circles it’s still not considered a planet. Chocolatier L’eclat of the Righa Royal Hotel in Japan is selling chocolates that look like the planets in our solar system. The delicious, celestial collection includes: Mercury (coconut mango), Venus (cream lemon), Earth (cacao), Mars (orange praline), Jupiter (vanilla), Saturn (rum raisin), Uranus (milk tea), and Neptune (cappuccino).
If you’re going to make the effort to create your very own chocolate bar, you might as well go all out. And this is exactly what a few friends did – making sure to capture every step and post it to Imgur so the world could follow their steps in making a giant Snickers bar.
Girl Eats Food is probably one of the most entertaining food series you’ll ever watch. And in its first episode of season two, Jo Fuertes-Knight takes us on a journey into the healing powers of cacao, where people use raw chocolate to ‘align the heart chakra’ and go on an ‘inwards journey’. Take a peak […]
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the Lay’s Wavy Potato Chips dipped in Milk Chocolate. Also, diet? What diet? The gift from god, err, product will be sold for $3.49 per 5-oz bag. It will be sold only at Target stores as part of a limited release through the holidays. I repeat: limited release – which is code for ‘time to panic buy!’
So this is Edible Anus, which apparently has been around since 2004 and claims to be ‘the anus that made Britain great’ and ‘changing the world, one crack at a time’. A limited edition crystal glass anus edition is available for sale on its website, too. Classy.
New Zealand-based Bloomsberry carries a range of chocolate bars with witty packaging that anyone with any sort of problem would be glad to accept as a gift. There’s Bochox, for example, a 70% dark chocolate to address these pesky age-related wrinkles; the Marital Bliss chocolate that proclaims to be ’50% his 50% hers” but is […]
What a pairing. The ChocolatRouge range of wines, which mixes up chocolate and red wine in varying levels of sweetness (Dark Red, Sweet Red and Milk Chocolate), infiltrated our consciousness recently and we haven’t stopped fantasizing about it since. Baileys addicts now have an alternative.
Chocolate is just chocolate, right? Not when it comes to Chocomize, which makes customized chocolate bars that you can stuff a multitude of pretty random stuff in, like 23 karat gold flakes, mini pretzels, graham teddies, bacon bits and Monkey Munch. Yes, you can even have them stick a candle in it. Sadly, the wax isn’t edible.
An incredible discovery on my recent European trip was in Paris, where chocolate becomes art sculptures at Maison Georges Larnicol. You’ll find a wide variety of art forms on a chocolate: from ladybirds and spiderwebs, to stilettos, fish, cars, musical instruments, frogs, and even an NBA basketball. All edible, of course. You can also try a delicious macaroon at his latest store at 132 Blvd. Saint-Germain, or at his first location, at 14 Rue de Rivoli.
Danish chocolate brand Anthon Berg opened the world’s first chocolate store where you can’t pay with cash or credit cards, just good deeds.
