This is a beautiful, two layer wooden presentation box with insanely detailed chocolate fossil replicas nestling inside.
In the upper tray are sixteen prime examples of Trilobites, Ammonites, Brachiopods and Sharks teeth, in a mixture of Milk, Dark and White chocolate.
In the lower section, as you pull back the shredded paper you will find a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth and a Megalodon carcharodon tooth inside.
The box comes complete with notes on the edible fossils and can be personalised with your name as the paleontologist who discovered them.

“This arrived in the post this morning, and I can’t get over how wonderful it is! The fossils are superb reproductions, fantastically presented and simply stunning. The packaging is simple and elegant, and makes the whole thing feel more like something out of a nineteenth century ‘cabinet of curiosities’ rather than a collection of chocolates. The only question is whether they should be eaten, or simply left as a gorgeous display item. The ultimate fossil lovers gift!” (M. Champion)
“My friend received these and responded “O!M!G! They’re gorgeous!” Thank you for providing a way for me to give my friend a spectacularly original gift.”

Overall this box gets an A+ from this paleontologist. I recommend this as a good birthday, valentines, or other holiday gift for that fossil lover in your life. The presentation is beyond awesome and the chocolates with definitely delicious. Many of the fossils even included special coatings to make them appear more genuine.

This review is second-hand, because I purchased this for a friend’s birthday while I was on the other side of the planet.
What you are getting if you purchase this is an edible work of art. The detail, both in shape and colour, is intricate, precise, and beautiful; the presentation (the box) is also very well done. The skill that it would have taken to produce these is nothing short of impressive.
In addition, I will say that Sarah is diligent and helpful. She ensured I was aware of the implications of delivering these to a warmer climate, and presented options to ensure their safe delivery.
Overall, superb product, extremely well done.

A wonderful gift for fossil hunters and chocolate lovers! Sarah was very helpful and quick to respond to my questions, and the finished product was amazing! Highly recommended and worth the wait to receive in the US. Thank you!

My son and Grandson are fossil addicts and the chocolate fossil hamper box was a lovely surprise for them. Beautifully presented and packaged and Sarah couldn’t have been more helpful. Will be back in touch again for the Easter egg collection in due course as shown on the web shop. Thank you again!

My husband has been fossiling for years now. He also has a huge sweet tooth! This was the perfect combination. Everything about this box was a work of art. It was so beautifully done and tasted incredible. I will absolutely be buying from here again. We live in Florida, shipping didn’t take very long. Everything came in perfect condition.

This is an absolutely brilliant gift for the chocolate-loving fossil hunter in your life (or the fossil-loving chocolate hunter!) The chocolate is delicious, each piece is a miniature work of art, and the box is wonderful. The trilobite was my particular favourite; I could hardly bring myself to eat it, it was so beautiful. But I’m glad I did.

Watching a life-long palaeontologist squeal with delight upon opening this box of treasure was a memorable experience. Each fossil was examined and brought forth a sense of wonder. Reminiscences flowed of finding one ‘just like this’ when on holiday or visiting friends. The process of unwrapping this beautiful box of fossils took a long time and became quite an event. And then came the tasting of the most delicious chocolate imaginable. This box of fossils is one of those presents that gets remembered for a great many years, and is very special indeed.

I’m not a paleontologist museum curator or chocolatier, but these miniature pieces of art sculpture (chocolates does not do them justice) are beyond amazing. You cannot fault the quality of product and VP presentation.
I bought them for a gift and must say the recipient was delighted. I was also delighted with the level of customer service. There was an issue with the ordering that may have resulted in the gift being late for the party. However Sarah sorted this out and saved the day.
In short, a unique and brilliant product with an exemplary customer service ethos. Small business at its finest.
Definately buy from Sarah and the edible museum again.

Very pleased when this arrived. It is lovely. Sarah and crew have done a nice job with the product. The package was a bit beat up coming from England to Western US but they had taped it in so it arrived safely. May want to consider a bit strong packaging But again, it did arrive just fine. Am very happy.

So glad you like it and that it did get to you safely – We are taking on board your feedback about the packaging and will go back to our previous box!

I bought this for a fossil enthusiast and the recipient’s reaction was very satisfactory! She loved the detail of the fossils and the presentation, and it immediately made it onto her twitter feed! The only problem is they look so great she is reluctant to eat them!
