Video: A Chocolate Record (That Really Plays!)
When a baker in Scotland decided to make an edible 7-inch single for his friends’ band, it took a few tries but incredibly, he found a way to successfully substitute chocolate for vinyl. Watch how he did it and hear a snippet of chocolate-made music after the jump!
After experimenting with molding chocolate onto records and making a homemade template of the record to use as a chocolate mold, baker Ben Milne finally connected with the band’s record label, which gave him a press used to mold vinyl into records. The result? A chocolate record that actually plays music!
We won’t be replacing our vinyl with chocolate anytime soon, but this is still so cool.
