How Long Can You Resist a Chocolate Bar For?

 

 

We’re betting it’s not 80 years…

A coronation souvenir bar (more than a little past it’s sell by date) made to celebrate the coronation of King George Sixth is up for auction in South Derbyshire.  Talking about their unusual lot the auction house said "We handle rare and unusual items on a daily basis but are still often surprised by objects brought to us. Who would have thought that no-one would give in to the temptation to eat the chocolate? It may be well past its sell-by date now but we are certain there will be an appetite for this in the saleroom!".  Amazingly the chocolate (still wrapped in its original foil) seems to have fared well – we can’t say any chocolate has ever hung around the Chocolate House long enough to try this out, but at 80 years old it has lasted even longer than Queen Elizabeth II’s reign!  Of course our First Class Stamp Barand Royal Chocolate Crownsreleased to commemorate The Queen’s 90 thBirthday would be perfect if anybody would like to put ours to the test!  Read the full story from the Burton Mail here.
