Chocolate. Some people crave it, some people hate it. It is given and used for many occasions, for celebratory reasons and for some as comfort in bad times and sad times.Deadline: December 31, 2015
We’ve all heard the phrase ‘death by chocolate’, and I want you to think about exactly what that could mean. We could go literal with the eventual cholesterol induced cardiac arrest of an over-indulging chocoholic, to someone being drowned in a chocolate fountain, maybe even encasing someone inside a chocolate filled sarcophagus. Maybe opening that Terry’s Chocolate Orange will open more than just orange-flavoured chocolate segments, what if Willy Wonka was the devil and had lured the children with delicious temptation that would end in their sticky demises?
I want soft centres, hard centres, maybe even a few fruity centres to get my teeth into, but I want chocolate horror.
