Melting Chocolate Door Stop
Advantages: Realistic looking and functional
Disadvantages: Hollow and not solid
Chocolate Bar Door Stop.
Made from silicone.
Has 8 'chunks' of chocolate.
Milk chocolate (also available in pale pink).
Chocolate chunks imprinted with 'chocoholic'.
Size of bar is 4.25 x 1.5 wide x 1.25 inches high at highest point.
Hollow inside and underneath.
£2.22 on ebay but some are selling for £14.99. They are also available on some of the gift websites - just google 'chocolate bar doorstop'.
I have two sons and one is a chocolate fanatic. Therefore I am often scouring the internet for reasonably priced quirky little gifts.
I came across this doorstop on ebay a while ago and as it was selling for just £2.22 and with free postage I decided to order it.
The bar came in a clear acrylic type box and is quite realistic looking. The seller also had it in pink but I did not think my son would appreciate that colour - though for a girl it would be great - or even as a quirky Easter gift.
The bar is wedge shaped with the thin end having what looks like some melted chocolate around its edges - as if it is slowly melting.
The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that it was not solid but was hollow underneath - but divided into sections where the chunks are formed - so it does have some stability. However it was not sold as being solid but just what I imagined.
The melted edge is what you place under the door and it does hold the door in place. My son has trouble with his bedroom door as if we have all the windows and doors open the gust of wind will blow his door open so he likes having a stopper handy to hold it closed.
This is even a cute gift just to have on your desk or on display. Looking on ebay there is also another doorstop which is very similar but although it is a chocolate bar shape it does not have the melting effect around the edges - so its really whichever you would prefer.
Thinking about it I may get the pink ones for my nieces for Easter as they have way too much chocolate!
My son likes his unusual doorstop and if you put it on a shelf when not in use it does not scream that it is a doorstop - it then just looks like a novelty.
Great item for £2 but not worth £15.

Summary: Cheap and unusual for a gift.
