Chocolate's yummy, innit? So why deny your love for the scrumptious stuff when you can celebrate it with the whimsically daft Chococlock. This stylish retro-modern timepiece is a bit like a cuckoo clock but when its shutters open, on the hour every hour, it delivers a scrumptious chocolate treat to the tune of the 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy'. You then have 30 seconds to retrieve your reward before the clock snatches it back. Loo break? Forget it.
Choc around the clock!
An ideal gift for the chocoholic with everything, the Chococlock is bound to become a must-have accessory for executive diet-dodgers everywhere. Simply fill it with your favourite bite-size sweeties (Maltesers, Revels, Minstrels, etc) and wait for the big hand to reach that magical number twelve.
For the weak-willed amongst you the Chococlock features a naughty but nice cheat button that will deliver a treat whenever you press it. Yes, that does rather defeat the whole 'good things come to those who wait' ethos, but don't worry, we won't tell.
Don't over use the cheat button!
Despite its silly premise, this kooky clock can actually assist in the workplace (stick with us here). Simply use your hourly chocolate treat as an incentive and that annual report will be finished in no time. Either that or you'll wake up with chocolate round your gob and a P45 in your pocket.
Woo hoo! It's Choco Time!
Fill up with your favourites
The Chococlock holds about 30 bits of chocolate, so assuming you resist hitting the cheat button you can sit gawping in anticipation for a marathon (or should that be Snickers?) 30 hours. Which is obvious, we know, but if you're loopy enough to sit by a sweet-dispensing clock for that long it's unlikely you can count. When the clock is eventually empty it can be re-stocked with choc via a small rear chute.
Short of a VIP visit to Willy Wonka's factory and a lifetime supply of chocolate we can think of no better present for your favourite chocoholic. So get ordering. What time is it? It's choco time!

I love the Chococlock, it's so goood! I like it because of how the way the chocolate balls come out of the coo coo hole. Johnathan, Padiham - 4th August 2009
Gosh I just LOVE this cute
little clock. Got mine today
and it's so amazing! Can't
wait for the time to go by.
Even though it would be great if you could change the song it's playing, but still the little melody just has this fairy touch that goeas with the clock.
Please Please make them manufacture more models with jellibeans etc.... .

This isn't a reveiw but a question... does it have an alarm?? Niamh M, Dublin - 2nd April 2009
Firebox says: Hi Niamh - there's no alarm, just an hourly chocolate fix!
I love my clock! It's pink and looks great in my kitchen, the free chocolates are delicious and a find myself waiting until the clock strikes the next hour! Well worth buying, never regretted it in the whole time I have had it. Buy, buy, buy before they all go!
