the sound and the chocolate

Fife [Scotland] baker Ben Milne may be used to his friends Ziggy and Tommy making sweet, sweet music, but now he’s given it a go himself with the creation of a playable 7 inch single made entirely of chocolate.

The delicious record, which plays a recognisable version of Anti-Climb Paint by Edinburgh-based band Found, works on all record players and is completely edible. Even the paper label can be eaten.

The idea came to baker Ben when he and his friends from the band decided to do something together. His first attempt saw him pour molten chocolate on to a regular vinyl disc, but he found out that it played the reverse of the song.”

[He ultimately used the same template that the vinyl discs themselves are pressed from].

Either I’m hungry or this is really sexy.  A couple of issues, though:  I imagine you could only play the record like twice before the soft chocolate grooves degrade to the point of becoming unlistenable, and the chocolate would probably REALLY jack up your needle.  Super cute though.  Party/Wedding favor?
