Benedict Cumberbatch is known for two things: his fascinating name (which no one can help but mock just a little) and being a cultural icon for anyone who’s ever watched Sherlock or heard the actor speak. While not everyone understands Cumberbatch’s appeal, there’s no denying that the Benedict Cumberbunny, created by master chocolatier Jen Lindsey-Clark, is the only Easter treat worth buying this year (or at least the one with the cleverest name).
Eggs? Nah. Hollow-eyed traditional chocolate bunnies? Pass. A full-on chocolate rabbit that that costs around $70 and looks suspiciously like a young Abraham Lincoln? “GIVE IT TO ME IMMEDIATELY,” the public screams, “LET ME GNAW ITS LITTLE FACE OFF UNTIL IT BLEEDS!”
Check out some pictures of this delicious, delicious monstrosity:
Here’s a description of exactly what you’ll be consuming if you choose to shell out all your hard-earned coins to buy Chocolatician’s super-special Easter surprise:
A delicious Belgian chocolate rabbit with a handsome face and a tasty bottom.
400g of everyone’s favourite detective. This chocolate bunny glazed with lustre dust is not just for easter but would make a fantastic Easter gift for all the family. The limited edition white chocolate ones come with a edible 22 carat gold bow-tie, super special Cumberbunny for oscar night!
Just remember to never put it in the fridge or store it in direct sunlight (and don’t feed it after midnight, either). And if you live somewhere particularly warm but want to put this baby on display for the rest of eternity, you’re probably going to want to buy it its own temperature-controlled case. Sounds pricey, but you’ll be the talk of the town when you invite your friends over for dinner and a viewing.
Chocolatician’s website suggests that the creators are willing to make custom chocolates molded from your own face, so if you’re a particularly huge fan, you can have your chocolate likeness live with Cumberbatch’s together forever (never mind that the website says six months). That’s not a creepy idea or anything, though.
