The Glorious bonbon will have a limited edition of just 1,000 bonbons, sold in packaging that is also “a work of art and almost like a jewellery box,” that can be kept after the bonbon has been eaten. It consists of a black lacquered wooden base with gold serial number engraving and a crystal cloche, coated with thousands of Swarovski crystals and pearls, finished off with a gold ribbon handle.
The diamond-shaped chocolate will cause all sorts of reactions, dividing those who believe it is acceptable to create such an expensive and exclusive rarity and others who think it’s simply too extravagant for a chocolate to be this expensive. Nevertheless, Glorious promises to keep tongues wagging not only in Portugal but also Internationally.
