For Sale: Bathroom Made of Chocolate

Buyer advised not to eat it all at once

(Newser) – The wait is over, folks: You can finally eat your entire bathroom. British bathroom designers and chocolate makers have joined forces to build a sink, bathtub, and, yes, toilet out of chocolate, the New York Daily News reports. Altogether, the set will cost you about $133,000. But the real cost could be to your health: The Maderno Sweet, as it's called, contains about 9.4 million calories' worth of Belgian chocolate. That would theoretically keep you going for about 12 years, the Daily News notes. The makers say that "one shouldn't attempt to consume the entire suite in one session."

The idea for the set came from a spelling mistake. "People are regularly searching for 'bathroom sweets,'" when they (presumably) mean suites, the makers note on the chocolate bathroom's site. "We decided to answer their search, literally," Bathrooms.com CEO Ian Monk notes. His company joined with chocolatiers Choccywoccydoodah to create the set, which should last about six months. They don't actually recommend using it; for one thing, hot liquid will melt it, so "it's not ideal for running that relaxing bath!" Monk notes, via the Los Angeles Times. Meanwhile, Hershey's is working on 3D-printed chocolate.
