Sweet Temptation

"I can resist everything but temptation" -Oscar Wilde.

What true chocoholic can't relate to Mr. Wilde's confession? When you just have to give in, this stately accessory provides a subtle reminder that sometimes we all fall victim to our vices. Comes with a chocolate bar, which fits into a groove in the pewter base. It can also hold a variety of other items such as a cell phone, business cards or a small notepad.

Paperweight is made in Rhode Island of lead-free pewter. Dark chocolate bar is made in Pennsylvania.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

              Bought two of these for gifts for my co-workers. They are both chocoholics. One likes dark and the other doesnt but they loved the saying and the concept as much as I did.That's why I am ordering one for myself.

                          Very cute idea, but it is a bit pricey. It would be better if $20 or under.

                          Gave it a thumbs up for the cute idea, but it's too pricey for what is, essentially, a knick-knack.

                          Hello, Voters! Thank you so much for all of your votes and comments. Our product development team is always working to come up with unique new items. Keep in mind that the estimate price is based on the cost of the materials, the fact that the item is made in the USA, and the cost of the yummy chocolate bar that will be included with the item for easy gifting (or snacking-if this product is a "treat" for yourself!). We'd love to hear more about what you'd like to see our product development team work on next. What quotes could you see on items like this handy holder?

                          I might pay that much if it came with more than one candy bar, and it might have a multi purpose use such as a paper weight, but as for a candy bar holder? really? it might only hold my candy bar from the warehouse to my mouth and then it would find a place at the back of a book shelf. as for price, I would only pay that if it came with more than one candy bar!

                          Like the concept but it could apply to more than JUST chocolate. This could be a life moto and could be displayed in other ways too. I wouldn't want to advertize the kind of chocolate or my weakness to chocolate in this way.

                          It's a cute idea, but way too expensive, and would never have a candy bar just sitting in it or else it would make the quote irrelevant.

                          A chocoholic like myself will not need something to hold their chocolate bar... It won't last that long. Very pointless (and expensive). Not interested.

                          I already have a candy bar holder. It's my HAND.

                          who need this when you have your hand or better yet your mouth

                          My mouth holds candy bars best, so don't need a holder on any surface, desk or otherwise.

                          Really - who displays a candy bar, except for maybe someone selling World's Finest Chocolate in an office break room?!? I'm not sure what's making me laugh more - the concept, the "product story" or the crazy price. Oscar Wilde would give this a double thumbs down.
