It's striking to see, but I cannot fathom why anyone would pay $200 for chocolate.

Perhaps I'm the wrong person to say anything since I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I can't imagine why anyone would pay more than a few bucks for chocolate. Chocolate is chocolate. Some is a little better than others, but when you get right down to it, it's all the same.

Did anyone read the site? They're cast from real human skulls!

Yes, I got that part. Eating chocolate that has been cast from a human skull is not actually all that appetizing to me, honestly. It does look "authentic," I'll give it that.

Guess I'm the weird one around here. I'd pay 200. Maybe I'm just bad at managing my money. I don't know if I'd even eat it. It kinda gives me the heaves too, but chocolate shaped form a real skull is irresistible to me, not really to eat, just to own.

Well, you'd have to keep it frozen, I guess, or laminated or something, in order to preserve your investment. Around here it would melt in the summertime.

At my age you think hard about how you might spend $200. I have two kids in braces, one in band, one about to start college, two cars that need gas, pets that need on-going food and medical attention, a house that is constantly in need of repairs, etc., etc. The money vaporizes fast enough. A chocolate skull would be way down on my list of priorities. But it was kinda neat to see.

Chocolate's not really a forever thing though--you should try to find some kind of resin skull cast from a real human skull :wink:

I don't think I would want to eat something that was in contact with an actual human skull, or any other body part for that matter.

Ha! Ha! Got you there Mike. A lot of ingredients in food are touched by human hands, and I'd hate to think about where some people's hands have been. I guess that's the chance you take when eating out?

$200 for a chocolate skull? That thing better be filled with caviar.

For 200 bucks, it better be filled with gold. As for human hands, I agree. That could be pretty nasty, but the thing about a human skull, or any other bone, is that it was once imersed in decomposing flesh and the like. Restaurants are pretty careful about making sure their employees use rubber gloves when handling our food, but the idea of something that I eat actualy comming in contact with something that once rotted in a grave just does not do it for me. So yes, you "got me."

I think they look pretty cool, but I doubt I'd invest $200 in something that could possibly melt on me.
As far as being cast from a human skull, I would hope at least the skull was sanitized first! The chocolate ones remind me of those ancient fossils you find from archeological digs.
