Cocoagraph Edible Photos Like Spatial-Postal Cards

Cocoagraphs are photos you can eat - because they're made of chocolate.


(Cocoagraph chocolate photos)

These completely edible chocolate photographs bring back the nostalgia of the POLAROID in a unique and charming way. These distinctive creations called COCOAGRAPHS combine our love of vintage, photography and of course CHOCOLATE!

Cocoagraphs can be custom made with any photograph you choose! We can also adorn them with logos or any other image of your liking.

YOU CAN EVEN SEND US YOUR HIPSTAMATIC OR INSTAGRAM PHOTOS WHICH ARE PERFECTLY FORMATTED TO BECOME A COCOAGRAPH - chocolate Polaroid!

Fans of Bill the Galactic Hero, the 1965 novel by Harry Harrison, will recall the edible post cards:

Bill was shocked when he saw Tembo read the card one last time then plunge it into his cup of dinner.

"What are you doing that for?" he asked, shocked.

"What else is mail good for?" Tembo hummed, and poked the card deeper. "You just watch this now."

Before Bill's startled gaze, and right in front of his eyes, the card was starting to swell. The white surface broke off and fell away in tiny flakes while the brown insides grew and grew until they filled the cup and were an inch thick. Tembo fished the dripping slab out and took a large bite from one corner.

"Dehydrated chocolate," he said indistinctly. "Good! Try yours."
