World’s First Chocolate Record That Plays Music

When I was a little girl, not only did I have to walk through snow to get to the bus stop every day, but I also had to listen to music on what was called a record. See kids, we had it rough back then. We would put the record on a record player and joyfully dance to the scratchy low quality sound. Of course, these days many times that sound isn’t considered low quality, it’s considered retro. That’s what happens when something geeky becomes obsolete.

I haven’t seen a record in many years, so I was so happy when I read that a Scottish band recently released a new record, but this isn’t an ordinary record. It’s made out of chocolate! It’s definitely the trend right now to create unexpected things out of chocolate. Just to name a few, we’ve written about a chocolate room, a chocolate boat, a chocolate website, chocolate Lego bricks and even chocolate condoms. Now we can add a chocolate playable record to the list.

The band is called FOUND and the chocolate maker who helped make it all a reality is named Ben Milne. The song the record plays is the band’s new single Anti Climb Paint. I put the video below for you to check out. The only problem is, the chocolate record can only be played about ten times before it starts to fall apart. Well, I guess that’s not really a downside. After that, then it’s ready to eat!

    Sorry, Diana, but Found’s “Anti Climb Paint” is NOT the first record ever pressed out of chocolate! The German Stollwerck chocolate company beat them by 108 years! In 1903 Stollwerck merchandised a line of three-inch records lasting about 35 seconds each, and pressed them in chocolate as well as in a slightly more durable wax composition called “Karbin.” (Found also released their single on a more durable material — vinyl — as well as the chocolate version.) Stollwerck also marketed toy phonographs on which to play the chocolate records. At least one of the Stollwerck records survives and has been issued on CD: Mozart’s song “Sehnsucht nach dem Frühling,” released on two CD’s on the Symposium label (“About a Hundred Years: A History of Sound Recording,” Symposium 1222; “W. A. Mozart, 1756-2006,” Symposium 1363). For more information on the Stollwerck records and players, visit http://edisontinfoil.com/stollwercks.htm
