From cooked insects to fermented bird meat, humans have been eating all kinds of outrageous foods for hundreds of years, but there are some things that I just wouldn’t dream of putting in my mouth. One of them is the anus-shaped Belgian chocolates sold by a cheeky British chocolaterie.
If you think the chocolate “Edible Anus” looks remarkably like the real thing, that’s because it’s made using a mold “crafted from the posterior” of the company’s “stunning butt model.” Feel like throwing up yet? There’s really no proof of that on their official website, so you’ll just have to take their word for it. The allegedly delicious treats are hand-crafted in the UK, and contain no artificial preservatives, if it’s any consolation. According to the geniuses behind this novelty desert, the Edible Anus is ”the perfect gift for the whole family” and will “light up” Grandma’s face, as she “unwraps a homely selection of chocolate cracks”. I’m pretty sure my family would disown me if I sent them a box of these unique treats, but they’re actually a great gift idea for your proctologist.
I’ve done some research on these unconventional chocolates, and apparently they’ve been around for at least six years. An old article on Yahoo Voices claims they were in such demand back then that an one time they were unavailable. With the press coverage they’ve been getting lately, these things are bound to make a comeback. But even if you can’t buy chocolate anuses, the company also sells solid silver anuses as souvenirs. They cost £260 ($400) and the price goes up as demand increases.
