$4,600 Chocolate Printer Will Leave You Craving More (and Broke)

Say What!? 12

choc creatorHoly truffles, check out this amazing 3D chocolate laser printer that prints out ... stuff! In chocolate! And it only costs $4,600! Wow, like ... that's something you could only do with your hand and a three-dollar pastry bag.

I'm trying to figure out what's awesome about this gadget, aptly named the Choc Creator. You could print out chocolates while watching Real Housewives, I guess. But think of all the chocolate you could buy with that $4,600. Yes. I think that is something I would like to spend the next five minutes thinking about. Let's do that.

Good god, if you had a chocolate laser printer, wouldn't you want to print out something a little more exciting than a square? I mean, why not Ryan Gosling's head, for example? Anyway, here's what $4,600 worth of chocolate might look like.

  • Around 9,198 individually-wrapped Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars
  • Around 657 Mast Brothers fancy-pants chocolate bars (my favorite)
  • 766 Dove "Silky Smooth" Solid chocolate bunnies
  • A year's worth of chocolate from Jacques Torres for eight people.
  • 220 pounds of chocolate-covered Oreos from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Company

Well, that was fun! I almost forgot that I was writing about how much chocolate you can buy for the price of a Choc Creator and thought I was actually chocolate shopping for a minute there. SIGH. Oh well, back to my green tea.

If you had the money, would you ever buy the Choc Creator?
