Choco-Glock in Nostalgic Chocolate Ammo Collector Tins


SAN DIEGO--Aeon Meridian LLC chocolate novelty collector tin series features interesting gun- and military-related candy products.

Fashioned after the military ammunition can, the lockable collector tins are filled with chocolate bullets, peanut-butter-filled shotgun shells and gummi worms.

“The idea for the tins came while my sons and I were coming home from deer hunting in Utah,” said Richard Muir, CEO. “We thought it would be fun to create something with chocolate that would be a great gift for those who enjoy hunting and fishing. The first product was a lockable tin fashioned after the military ammunition can filled with 20 rounds of milk chocolate bullets. It has been a tremendous success already having sold over 50,000 tins.”

The product line now incorporates five collector tins each filled with either chocolate bullets, peanut butter filled shotgun shells or gummi worms for the fishing enthusiast. Three of the tins feature vintage Currier & Ives prints depicting hunting and fishing scenes in early America. The tins are all lockable and stackable so they make storing different types of real ammunition very convenient and safe.

The chocolate used for the contents of each tin is high quality chocolate, not the cheap chocolate that one might expect to find in a novelty gift of this type, Muir said. “We know and appreciate great chocolate and wanted to provide our customers with delicious chocolate as well as a keepsake,” he added.

Muir said, “Many of the military style tins have made their way over to Iraq and Afghanistan via military families and friends.”

The collector tins will be carried in a variety of retail sporting goods stores and will also be available on-line. One product has 20 Rounds of milk chocolate bullets in .50 caliber size. Each chocolate ammo tin measures 5"L x 3.5"W x 3.5"H. Price: $12.99. The chocolate handgun looks like a Glock and sells for $24.99. Find them at www.AeonMeridian.com.

They would probably kick a kid out of school for bringing a chocolate Glock to class. Part of the zero tolerance policy, so common sense doesn't need to be applied.

It's good chocolate. I got a couple of .50 cal boxes last Christmas.

Will this new fad phase out the old expression "Eat My Lead"?
