Do you have a favorite photograph of a loved one? Would you like to display it in an attractive frame, and yet still be able, if the need arose, to eat it?
If so, you are going to be very excited by this item. Thanks to important scientific advances in the field of chocolate, researchers have figured out a way, using food coloring, to put a photo -- supplied by you -- onto a half-pound chocolate bar in such a way that the whole shebang is actually edible!
We tested this concept ourself by sending in a nice color photograph of Vice President Dick Cheney. We chose him because there is absolutely nothing funny about using his name in this context.
But you can submit any photo you want. This will make a tasteful (Ha ha!) gift for anybody on your gift list. And of course you'll want to get one for yourself -- maybe a photo of your family, to keep on your desk at the office. When your boss compliments you on how nice your loved ones look, you can reply: ''Thanks! Would you like a bite of them?'' This puts you on the fast track to promotion.
