Karl Lagerfeld worships his muse/companion/cabana boy, Baptiste Giabiconi, so much that he made a likeness of him … out of chocolate. The edible man sculpture debuted in Paris as part of the marketing campaign for Magnum ice cream. Is that an ice cream bar in your tighty-whities or are you just happy to see me, Baptiste? I, too, believe I deserve a chocolate boy toy. Looks good, tastes good, doesn’t talk back. Does it really get any sweeter than that? [Gawker] Keep reading »
I love eating chocolate. I love smelling chocolate. And now, after using The Body Deli’s dark chocolate truffle body scrub, I love bathing in it, too. The dark chocolate truffle body scrub (exclusively available in Feb.), sloughs off skin just as vigorously as their pumpkin body scrub. The African shea, organic cocoa and organic virgin coconut butter leaves softer parts of my body, like my belly and my butt, feeling touchable and smooth. But I really love how my dry and scaly feet feel almost instantly prettier! My mother thought the dark chocolate smell was too pungently like “food,” but that wasn’t a problem for me. Keep reading »
The way to a woman’s heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone‘s heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger? Crushed candy cane, candy corn, or gummy bears? Chocri offers over 10 billion possible combinations, and you can even customize your chocolate bar with a message like “I love you” or “happy birthday.” If that set-up doesn’t just melt your heart, then nothing will.
Hubby Stefan Magdalinski knew that his wife, Kay, wanted an iPad for her birthday. But like a wily scamp, Stefan did not want to make it easy on her. Instead of using the obvious Apple box, he wrapped her iPad in plastic and had his friends who run a London chocolate shop dip it in frozen chocolate carbonite! The result? A gift that for Kay looks like a giant chocolate bar, but is actually a dream toy for an “Apple nut.” Dude totally should have gotten a blowie after that one. See one more photo, after the jump … [Unplggd] Keep reading »
L’universe de Chocolate has a new ad campaign to promote its Chocolate with Whisky truffles. No, it’s not a scantily clad woman on a bed or a happy couple enjoying a truffle while walking arm in arm. It’s a bunch of “drunk babies.” Like this little guy, who looks like he passed out in his car seat after popping 20 of those suckers. Initially, I laughed. But then I felt kind of bad about it. After the jump, some more “drunk babies.” See what you think. Genius advertising or totally inappropriate? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
