We’ve all heard the saying, “Life is like a box of chocolates.” If you’re fabulously wealthy, though, then maybe your life is more like a steamer trunk full of chocolates. In any case, MarieBelle New York’s Chocolate Picnic Steamer Trunk may just be the most expensive box of chocolates in the world.
MarieBelle has a reputation for making some of the world’s finest chocolates, which is quite extraordinary considering they only opened their doors in 2000. A box of only four pieces of their chocolates costs $12.
Now consider the fact that the Chocolate Picnic Steamer Trunk contains 500 pieces of chocolate ganache, five pounds of chocolate bark and croquettes, eighty ounces of Aztec hot chocolate in four tins, a twenty-ounce tin of Aztec Iced Chocolate, eight Aztec Hot Chocolate Bars, a teapot and infuser, two china teacups, a leather-bound journal and a small library of books on chocolate.
That’s bound to be a bit pricey, isn’t it?
Well, it may come as something of a shock that the steamer trunk only costs $15,000. Of course, you also have to purchase it in person from their New York store. Surely that will make up for the incredibly low price of the world’s most expensive box of chocolates.
