iPad un(chocolate)boxing

June 12, 2010

Right, this is the rebirth of my blogging. My first post in at least 5 years, with a new domain and a new title.

Anyone who knows my wife, @kerrching, knows that she’s a Apple nut. Also, with a June birthday, she has conveniently positioned herself perfectly for the Apple release cycle. An iPad was inevitable for her birthday, but I knew that if I just delivered a wrapped box, there wouldn’t be much of a surprise. Where’s the fun in that? So I rang my friends James and Paul, who happens to run the finest chocolate shop in London, Paul A Young Fine Chocolates and said “Could you freeze an iPad in chocolate carbonite, and have it survive?”. They weren’t sure, but were willing to give it a go.

Additionally, iPads aren’t available yet in South Africa, so it had to smuggled over from London, without Kay finding out what was going on.

The prepared product:

P1030591

Unwrapping begins:

The “I like chocolate, but you gave me 2 kg of it for my birthday, are you a bit nuts? look”:

Why don’t you pull on that little ribbon embedded in the chocolate?

Realisation!

Revelation:

Acceptance:

Success!!!!!!!!

With many many thanks to all the wonderful people who helped this to happen:

Simon , who waited in line forever at the London Apple Store to source the machine itself.

James and Paul, for successfully performing the carbon-freezing process, and

Karen, who went through a couple of hours of hell trying to explain what was going on to the South African customs people.

Oh, and just in case you’re worried: no iPads were harmed in this production :)

Update: 16:27, June 14th

Wow. Well, thanks for all the kinds words, everyone. This ran away a little more than I expected.

    Brilliant Idea ! So is the iPad working alright ?

  7. June 13, 2010 2:17 pm

    What a brilliant idea!
    I remember in high school, I used to think up ways for a friend to give money as a birthday present that wasn’t just like, “Here, have a 20.” One time he gave someone $20 in pennies and another I suggested that he put the $20 bill in a ziplock bag and put that in a bottle of coke. He ended up also freezing said bottle before giving it to our friend.

  8. June 13, 2010 2:18 pm

    This is absolutely something unexpected of the norm!! Haha, your wife must have felt sweeter than the chocolate itself :D happy birthday to her!

  9. June 13, 2010 2:19 pm

    This is quite genuinely superb!!

    Totally brilliant, I might steal that idea one day for a special someone’s birthday! I actually did the reverse once at an excavation (well, kinda sorta). We buried a box of goodies in the dirt and then forced the birthday boy to dig on THAT PARTICULAR SPOT until he hit the box. Got pretty much the same facial expressions out of it as your wife had. Great going!

    Marvelous idea! Wow, you took surprise to a whole new level. How will you top that in the future?

    fabulous! what a great surprise!

  14. June 13, 2010 2:52 pm

    Not only is that clever but soooooo romantic! And I can’t believe you risked wrapping it in chocolate without knowing if real damage could occur. LOL.

  20. June 13, 2010 3:43 pm

    Very cute! From the look on her face, you clearly got some major brownie points for that one! I wouldn’t be the biggest fan of the iPad myself (*gasp*), so I hope the chocolate was nice too. :)

    One year, I sent my husband on a treasure hunt to find his Christmas present, which itself was a printed photo of the gift, wrapped in a large box. (Long story short, it was too heavy to bring over on the plane.) Clues were hidden all over the house, even outside where he had to brave the freeze and snow to find them; that way it was a gift for me as well! Hehe. :)

    Fan-freaking-tastic. I love creative gifts, and this one takes the cake! –er, the chocolate?

  29. June 13, 2010 4:46 pm

    Stu says the conversation with customs must have gone along the lines of “Yes, it’s a chocolate bar. With an Electronic device embedded in it. With magnets and all sorts. Certainly officer.””

    There is no way I could top something like this!

    Honestly…

    you bought an ipad for your girl and covered in chocolate so she could say”wow my white fat boyfriend actually cares” “he is not just a boring ‘ceo’” no, no, no, no, no… he is a man od his times, he is inventive, he will covered the ipad with chocolate and send it across the globe, because he loves her.

        John, what is wrong with you, I mean it is just a post about a guy who gave the girl he loves a birthday gift, it was sweet. You must be really damned lonely for this to upset you. I mean your comments are just so damned angry, and about what, you disagree with his method of birthday gift. If there is anything having to do with twirp kids here , it is you.

    Good day I am so excited I found your blog, I really found

    Why obtain a book to read from a area bookstore when you could use precisely the same free
    selection card to check it out and focus it Anytime you’re a salary earner, loan providers can mostly bring your pay moves as proof
    income even though when you’re independantly utilised, you might need to showcase
    tax statements Mitt Romney speaks about college expenses,
    but he could be also discussing going back to acquiring private loan companies
    as the intermediary, which would put an additional
    stratum of value to the lender Details such as ss #,
    name on the banker, reference, or aged credit report
    triggers property, savings accounts, or other property of
    the consumer Stockholders’ Equity I The piece of a business’s balance sheet
    that contains the details of how a lot of the company’s sanctioned shares connected with stocks are generally fully bought
    and paid out, plus the amounts and reductions as a result
    of this company operation, described in the Kept
    Earning accounts This is known as the larger Value Shift System (LVTS),
    however it’s available exclusively through the Canada Payment Connection The most popular mortgage kind of mortgage may be the fixed-rate loan Pay day loans
    are completely hassle-free, since they involve not any credit check Low rates, nominal out of pocket costs and tax savings
    influence many people make use of their key house since collateral if they
    take out home equity loans for expense properties
    All you could require is an appropriate amendment of this
    plans and get away from all threats involved whilst carrying
    out your job Including the bad credit folks suffering from bad credit scores as well as arrears, defaults, insolvency, bankruptcy, IVAs and CCJs may apply
    for these lending products and get reaped the benefit with the
    amount borrowed immediately to satisfy the pressing issues
    As with all fund products, you have to carry out your quest plus ensure you
    obtain the ideal lender to work alongside Old debtors can have easier the perfect time to convince a legal court of their excessive hardship In addition important is the best current work and salary, which the loan company will appraise while deciding on whether
    or not to issue you a personal loan If your loan application is approved, most
    payday loan lenders in the UK will get you the cash within just 24 hours, which is important if you’d like extra money speedily In addition to business oriented enterprises, organisations such as the Roads Development Recognition which typically received immediate subventions from the Treasury have in addition started to be lent from private banks,
    as well as private models Choosing a mortgage lender is little difficult however online lookup will help you with this She rapidly cut up the charge card and sealed the bank account knowing that the lady was not gonna be
    able to manage to spend ample to really make use of the
    program’s rewards they go over the entire system but are shed enough to let the body so that you can breathe
    The only difference is that in addition to giving out his / her employment information, he has to show
    that he out there rightly possesses and possesses a priceless item for example a car or perhaps some extremely expensive jewelry You could seek specialist advice to assist with debts problems so that you can restore economic stability
