Valentine’s Day may be just around the corner but these needle-felted zombie chocolates may cause people to think about Halloween instead.
Etsy user Tina Waltke of Atlanta (aka SheWhoStamps) created the cool zombie-fied candy, complete with a heart-shaped box. Kurt Cobain would be proud. She’s managed to make them both cute and creepy at the same time.
Waltke tells the story of its creation much better than I can rephrase it:
“I bought a box of Valentine candy and brought it home. It sat there on the counter, just looking at me. Then somehow I totally, accidentally, unexpectedly, and other words that end in -ly, opened it. Then I decided to just have a peek in there.
“First, I threw away the coconut one. Come on, everyone knows that one is trash! If you’re that renegade coconut lover, let me know, and I’ll save ‘em up for you. Then, I had the caramel one, because that one is my favorite. And then… well, I’m not sure you need me to go on. The good news is, I’ve replaced the chocolates with zombie and monstery goodness!”
Unfortunately, they’re not made out of chocolate, but that hasn’t stopped Waltke from selling the first one for $40. If you order now from the U.S. she promises it’ll be here by Feb. 7, just in time for St. Valentine’s Day. If you’re outside the U.S., however, there’s no such guarantee, even if she assures you she loves your accent.
