Description

This beetle and its frame are solid chocolate – that makes it 225g / 7.9oz in total!

You can choose between White, Milk or Dark chocolate, and it will be skilfully hand painted and finished with an irridescent ‘carapace’.

This particular type of beetle comes in colours ranging from blue and violet to black and green. As in the wild, our colours vary so you can look forward to a unique colour combination when you open up your box.

A wonderful gift for animal lovers, entomologists and collectors of wonders!

(As featured on the Channel 4 TV show Extreme Chocolate Makers)

The Chocolate Dung Beetle, Violet Dor Beetle Geotrupes mutator, has been created in collaboration with entomologist Sally-Ann Spence FRES FLS, an entomologist who is passionate about this important group of insects and actively works to conserve and promote them.

Sally-Ann is an Honorary Associate of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and co-founder of  Dung Beetles for Farmers. She specialises in land management, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
This rare species of dung beetle inhabits unimproved pasture, moor, coastal grassland and coastal heathland in Britain.
Threats to this species include removal of livestock, change of land use, soil disturbance and insecticide treatments. Its conservation requires environmentally sensitive livestock farming. The beetles colour can range from from black to blue and from violet to green  – even a mix of two of these colours.

    Absolutely amazing ! You really don’t want to eat but hang it. But once you ‘be tried a little piece, you know that you are going to eat the whole thing as the chocolate is high quality !

    Simply exquisite edible art. First you want to study the species, to marvel at its fine detail, and only then is it right to delight in the most delicious chocolate you can ever imagine. Once seen, never forgotten. Once tasted, life is so much better.
