The Bite Size Sample Box has 6 highly accurate chocolate fossils in a mixture of white, milk & dark chocolate.
We lovingly make this assortment of ammonites, trilobites, sharks teeth and brachiopods by hand to exquisite detail.
What’s more, our Bitesize box is designed to fit through the letter box so you can drop a little bit of joy onto someone’s doormat.
Items may differ from those shown in the image as everything is hand made and hand painted.

Absolutely chuffed to bits with my taster box of chocolate fossils, that arrived yesterday.
They look way too good to eat! I’m most impressed by the variety that you provided too.
Whilst I cannot comment on the taste; the quality and detail is exceptional.
As a Geology curator, I would like to think that I can identify them all with a high degree of accuracy….but it would be an extra bonus to provide a fossil chocolate selection list; giving each its scientific name.
I purchased the bite-size sample boxes and the Natterjack toad. The toad is beautiful and the bite-size boxes contained more than expected with a really nice variety of realistic, detailed chocolate fossil replicas including ammonites (regular and heteromorph!), shark teeth and brachiopods! They were meant to be gifts but I had to pinch one for myself! Waiting patiently for Christmas to try them!
This made a really lovely present.

I got these and the heart for my husband for Valentine’s Day. They’re gorgeous and delicious, and the shipping to the US was fast and easy. We’ll order again next year!

A huge success with my grandson, who snuck the box away shortly after opening and consumed the whole thing in one sitting! So the chocolates must be great, and we LOVED the fossil aspect even more. Great idea to include scientific ID.
Happy New Year! I wanted to let you know that the chocolates arrived in plenty of time for my New Year’s party, and were a big hit with all my natural history museum friends. Thank you for helping us make a great New Year’s memory! (and I’m sure this will not be the last time I order from your wonderful store!)
Amazing chocolates and service! I bought them as a birthday gift for a friend (she’s an archaeologist) but it was a while until I saw her. She fell in love with then immediately and said they looked so real! I saw her again yesterday (a couple of months after I gave her the chocolates) and she had eaten two but wanted to keep the rest as they look so real. She said they tasted as good as they looked – delicious!

I bought a bite sized sample box as a gift, and it was a great hit! Apparently the chocolates looked too pretty to eat! I will definitely be buying from the Edible Museum again!

I got these as a father’s day gift for my dad, so I haven’t personally seen or tasted them, but reports from him are very positive! He was delighted to find a brachiopod in the box. I was a bit worried about whether shipping to the States would work, but it went fine and was surprisingly quick.

I bought the bite sized sample box as a gift for my daughter. She loves all things jurrasic and dinosaur related and they were a huge hit! It took her 2 weeks to get through them as she couldn’t bring herself to eat them! Thank you for the quick delivery and great service.

Big Thanks to Sarah who made a special box of white chocolate fossils for my son for his birthday – they are so realistic looking that my son cannot bring himself to eat them (just yet!).

I’m a returning customer. I buy the chocolate fossils and insects regularly as gifts and they are always a huge hit! Fantastic quality and beautifully handcrafted. If anyone I know is reading and wants to gift me some of these feel free to do so 😉

Wow !!! These chocolate “fossils” are amazing !!! Perfect representations of the fossil. And the taste is awesome !!! Will definitely order more chocolate from The Edible Museum !!!

I recently purchased the $15 fossil pack and sadly the two shark teeth came with the tip chipped off.
I totally understand that being and international shippment these things happen, but would recomend adding more padding to the box in order to protecto fragile pieces better
The quality of the casting is amazing nevertheless. Very happy with the product
Sarah Hardy –
I’m so, so sorry David! I’m sending you another box now.
Those teeth are so fragile, I often think of cutting them out altogether but I know people live them. Thanks for the feedback David, I’m increasing the tissue content!

Nicely molded chocolates; although a mix would’ve made a much better impact. Not much in the way of painting, so don’t expect too much. Unfortunately, the taste is horrible. It’s as if someone who made it was wearing lotion or perfume (or maybe a towel was used that was dried with a dryer sheet). The consistency is a bit gritty and dry. This is actually an asset when being shipped across seas since a high fat chocolate probably would’ve melted on its way over. So all in all, these are interesting to look at, but don’t plan on eating them (or maybe I received a bad batch). Shipping was perfect and it’s beautifully packaged.
Sarah Hardy –
Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry your chocolates were not of the quality that I work so hard to maintain. I really can’t imagine what has happened to create the effect you mention.
We don’t wear hand lotions or even allow them into the working area and maintain strict hygiene routines. For similar reasons would never use perfumed products in our laundry either. The chocolate we use is couverture with cocoa fats only and no palm oil etc added. I ship my chocolate across the world and have only ever experienced a melted product in an Australian heatwave, after which all my packaging had further insulation added. Its for this reason I also doubt it has melted. Ideally I would really like to pay for your return postage so that I can inspect them and see what has happened. I will also, obviously fully refund you and would also like to send you out another box if you don’t mind.
I don’t have you on record as a customer though (this comment thread doesn’t connect with an order you see) so could you email me with your order number so that I can do this for you.

Got the fossils for my son for Christmas – he’s a huge lover of dinosaurs and was thrilled with these! They’re beautifully made and look delicious (he can’t quite bring himself to eat them yet)!

We live in Australia and I saw the ad. for The Edible Museum after a friend posted it on Facebook. We have a small fossil collection at home that we’ve collected over the years and have always been interested; our son, now in the UK with his family, is fascinated by fossils too. Our young granddaughter showed us tiny fossils via Zoom that she had spotted in garden gravel…so when I saw what The Edible Museum has to offer, I couldn’t resist! What a fabulous idea! The Chocolate Fossils Bite-sized Sample Box arrived on the date I requested but the recipients resisted opening it until Christmas Day (quite admirable!). The Sample Box was very much appreciated, and the family reported the ‘fossils’ as amazingly accurate, well-presented, and deliciously smooth!
A minor confusion (on my part!) while ordering resulted in personal attention by the company – what a superior service! Highly recommended!

I bought my sister the small fossil box for her birthday – she has a degree in palaentology and I thought she’d get a kick out of it. She was so impressed that such a thing existed and was chuffed to tell us the names of all the pieces inside. Everything looked beautiful and she said they were delicious too!

Sorry to take that long to write review on this product but we were waiting for my daughter’s birthday with this lovely chocolate which I used as her birthday cake topper and it was fabulous. I didn’t have chance to taste the chocolate but I’m sure it was lovely as our children and their friends just inhaled it. The look was incredible and even though we were ordering it in hot weather The Edible Museum was in touch with us and it’s was pleasure to do business with them.

Purchased the fossil taster box as a gift for my sister after we had been on a fossil hunt. I have been informed that she is the last person to ever see these particular fossils as she’s not sharing them! Absolutely brilliant. Thank you.

Chocolate fossils ’bite size’ set
We purchased the chocolate ‘bite size’ fossils set for our sons birthday, as he is massively into fossils. He was absolutely over the moon with them. They were so realistic! He couldn’t bear to eat them initially because they are so amazing but he and his sister managed to finally eat one yesterday and they said they were absolutely delicious!
Thank you for your prompt service, and apologies that it took me a while to get round to writing this review!
Christine (verified owner) –
We ordered the fossil chocolates for our child’s science teacher – absolutely great.
Louise (verified owner) –
I bought this selection of fossil chocolates to decorate a birthday cake for my husband who is a fossil collector . They are so beautiful and very realistic – they were much admired by all the fossil/ geology experts at the birthday party.
I have to say that I didn’t get to taste them as they were all scoffed by the guests before I got the chance !
I’ll just need to order up another pack for myself .
Gavin (verified owner) –
Bought these as part of my daughter’s 18th presents.
She loved them; they looked fantastic and unusual and also tasted great.

I brought the Fossil Taster selection for some paleontologist friends. Who adored them as they are so life like and taste fantastic.
