At $14k, the World’s Most Expensive Box of Chocolates

Luxury chocolate isn’t new, but a new set of chocolates has earned the title of the most expensive chocolate in the world. Priced at $14,000, the chocolates are packaged in gold of the 585th test and tucked away in a uniquely faceted box made out of pure volcanic glass.

The Ross Limited has come up with this devilishly sweet and pricey treat named Gargantua. The chocolates inside the custom box have been given shapes, and they’re meant to symbolize the natural elements of the world.

The set includes a tetrahedron for fire, octahedron for air, a cube for earth, and a 20-sided icosahedron to depict water. The remaining two pieces feature a 12-faced dodecahedron to represent ether and a cone-shaped piece for vacuum.

The Gargantua chocolates have also been dedicated to three of the most iconic stars of the golden movie age in Vivien Leigh, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn. Special boxes will be sent to the museums and studios where said stars have been memorialized or worked at most of their lives.

Less than 1,000 Gargantua boxes will be released, giving the lucky owners a chance to have a one-in-seven million collectible and a star on The Ross Limited’s company website to commemorate their purchase.
