This Candy Land board game has chocolate game pieces and it just makes sense

Honestly, I don’t know why this didn’t exist until now. But, I’m not going to complain: This Candy Land board game edition contains chocolate game pieces.

It just makes sense, right? Play a quick round of Candy Land and snack one or a few pieces of candy in the process. The sugar rush just boosts the game hype. 

Well, this version of the classic board game is Candy Land: Milk Chocolate Edition. It contains 33 pieces of milk chocolate and, yes, you can eat them.

According to the product description on Amazon, the board game comes with 33 individually wrapped chocolates, a paper playing board and a gold trophy. While the trophy is likely for the game victor, every player is a winner here if they get chocolate in the process.

Now, what happens when you run out of the included chocolate pieces? I have no idea. Buy more chocolate to throw into the box, I guess. Maybe because the actual board is made out of paper instead of the traditional cardboard, this version is meant to be a one-and-done kind of thing. 

The board game’s availability online is limited, but here are a few places to scoop it up: Walmart ($17.99), Target ($9.99) and Amazon (price from individual sellers).

As the weather starts to reach MUCH colder temperatures (umm, hello Artic Blast, who invited you here?), board games make great indoor activities. I don’t recommend playing Candy Land Milk Chocolate Edition too close to the fire, though. That might not end well… #messy.
