Fewer things can be more encouraging than the chance to sit at and eat a full-sized chocolate picnic table that’s completely edible.
The chocolate picnic table, which appeared at Cotswold Wildlife Park in Oxfordshire, was made of 400 chocolate bars and weighed more than 130 pounds. The table was made by Cadbury, best known for its chocolate eggs here in the US, as a marketing ploy and to publicize National Picnic Week.
According to The Huffington Post, the table is fully edible, even though glaze that protects the chocolate from the elements was applied.
This table looks amazing and quite delicious, but I can’t imagine it’s very comfortable, even if it can seat a family of four. Let’s hope it didn’t melt while anyone was sitting on it or eaten by ants. Still it was a great creation to publicize National Picnic Week.
Although the US doesn’t have a week to celebrate picnicking, the month of July is National Picnic Month.
