Fooled Ya: Chocolate Lumps Of Coal

Chocolate Lumps Of Coal

 

For this holiday season, don’t be a grinch and give someone the gift of coals– chocolate lumps of coal, that is. That’s what they might look like at first glance, but you’ll soon realize that they’re just delectable chunks of chocolate wrapped in a not-so-appetizing package. To ward off kids and prying fingers, maybe?

Each package holds three lumps of chocolate wrapped in shiny black foil. They’re available online for $8.

Instant Happiness: Chocolate Cake in a Can

Chocolate Cake In A Can

Life can get pretty rough sometimes, but there’s no problem that a caring friend, a warm hug, or a slice of chocolate cake can’t solve. But why have just one if you can have all three? Not everyone has baking skills, but most people should find pouring water into a can simple enough–and that’s exactly all anyone has to do to “bake” the Food Ministry’s Cake in a Can.

They’re available in a bunch of yummy flavors, from classic chocolate and coffee to red velvet and chili chocolate. Each can contains a cake mix that’s measured to make a single cake, simply by adding water. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Cake in a Can is available online for £5 (about $9).

Build ‘Em Then Eat ‘Em: Functional Chocolate LEGO Blocks

Functional Chocolate LEGO

So you’ve been taught not to play with your food. But what if those morsels you can chew are actually toys at the same time? Cue Akihiro Mizuuchi and his chocolate LEGO bricks. They look just like LEGO and work like LEGO, too. This means you can connect and stack them one upon the other to come up the final figure you had in mind.

Making them isn’t exactly rocket science, but it’s not that easy, either. Chocolate is basically poured into precise molds, where they are cooled before being popped out and used as bricks. The fun part is making them using various types of chocolate, include dark, white, and even strawberry-flavored.

Chocolate Toothpaste: Have Dessert, Brush, and Have Dessert Again

Theodent Chocolate Toothpaste

 

Remember how you wished that chocolate-flavored toothpaste existed back when you were still a kid? Well, you might have grown several feet since then but now Theodent has made that wish come true with their new line of fluoride-free, chocolate-flavored toothpaste. This probably isn’t the first time someone decided to make toothpaste that made it seem like you were brushing chocolate all over your teeth, but Theodent is different in the sense that the chocolate flavor isn’t there just for novelty’s sake.

Rather, it’s there because of Theodent’s toothpaste formulation that contains a patented substance obtained from the cacao plant that gives it its distinctive chocolatey flavor. It’s called rennou, and it’s non-toxic and safe-to-ingest (although you probably shouldn’t squeeze it and eat it right out of the tube), so you won’t have to worry about kids accidentally ingesting it while brushing.

Theodent Classic is sold at $10, while the extra-strength variant Theodent 300 is priced at a whopping $100.

Bake, Eat, Repeat: Bakeable Kit Kats

Baked Kit Kat

 

Have a break, have a Kit Kat! But if your break is longer than the average, then why settle for a regular Kit Kat when you can have a baked one? This latest offering is only available at Japan’s Kit Kat Chocolaterie and is dubbed as “Delicious When Baked Pudding Flavored Kit Kats.” They’re essentially mini-sized, pudding-flavored Kit Kats that you’re supposed to pop into the oven before eating.

When heated in a toaster, the sugar content in the chocolate hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.

So This is an iPhone Case Made From Chocolate

iPhone Chocolate Case

 

Phone cases come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. One of the most unusual we’ve seen so far are these iPhone cases made from blocks of dark chocolate. The cases are a result of a love project by Grove, which is a designer of handcrafted wooden tech accessories, and Charley Wheelock of Woodblock Chocolatete.

The edible chocolate cases are compatible with the iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C. Like most cases, they allow access to the phones various ports and buttons. They’re described as being sleek and thin, and even smooth to the touch. They probably won’t stay that way, especially if the phones are being used in the sunny outdoors.

Grove co-founder Ken Tomita explains: “This was a great opportunity for us to team up with another locally owned business and combine our crafts to create something even Wonka would be envious of. They’re not for sale, mainly because we can’t keep making them without gunking up our machines, but don’t worry, all the manufacturing waste is being recycled in our bellies.”

Dream Come True: TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk

TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk

Nothing is more soothing than a warm glass of milk before bedtime. It’s made better with a few generous squeezes of chocolate syrup. And the only thing that can top that is the addition of a handful of marshmallows. This three step process (counting the step where you actually heat the milk and pour it into a glass) is eliminated with the introduction of TruMoo’s Chocolate Marshmallow milk. As the name implies, it’s milk flavored with rich chocolatey marshmallow goodness.

Just pour and drink for a cold treat or pop it into the microwave for a few seconds for a warm, tasty drink. Unlike other hot chocolate mixes, TruMoo claims that each glass of Chocolate Marshmallow contains the same nutritional value as regular milk without the added corn syrup or hormones.

Chocolate Marshmallow will be available at major retails in the US for a limited time until the of February.
