Staring at a Chocolate Skull stirs something deeply primal in all of us. Perhaps it’s the visual reference to our complicated and on-going (for most of us) process of evolution; our progression from monkey to man. Perhaps it’s the knowledge that you’re looking at 2.5kg of deliciousness.
It’s an eloquent and enticing reminder of our own mortality. Our delicious, chocolatey mortality.
Obtained by completely non-nefarious means (don’t ask) these confectionery craniums are moulded on an authentic human skull, meaning each one is mind-blowingly realistic. Available in three mouth-watering flavours of rich, high-quality Belgian chocolate, each skull weighs approximately 2.5kgs. Kept in a cool, dry place the Chocolate Skulls are edible for up to a year; making them an excellent cranial commodity or a remarkably delicious decoration.
Each skull is cast by hand in intricate detail, displaying the ravages of age as well as various timeworn scars and bumps. We asked our Firebox Forensic Team, but they were stumped, meaning that you get to make up your own bony backstory.
So whether you’re an Indiana Jones style adventurer, a fan of freaky phrenology or just planning a tasty tribute to Damian Hirst, no cranial collection is complete without a Chocolate Skull.
