The story is a strange one: A century ago, a young Eileen Margaret Elmes was gifted a box of chocolates for Christmas . However, THIS article teases with " this is what 100 - year - old chocolate looks like " but has only a vague and inaccurate description.

This Pizza Is A Christmas Feast...But On A Pizza

  This Pizza Is A Christmas Feast...But On A Pizza When you think about it, pizza is kind of already the perfect Christmas food. The colors are very on-brand for the holiday. Traditional Italian pizza is already white (thanks to mozzarella cheese) and red (courtesy of tomato sauce). Sprinkle some oregano and basical on top, and it's basically Santa's hat, complete with a sprig of holly.But that's not good enough for British supermarket Asda, who wants to make pizza as Christmas-y as possible. According to Cosmopolitan, a Christmas dinner-themed pizza is coming to Asda stores, and it sounds...well, a little confusing.

Elmes loved her box of chocolates so much that she kept them, uneaten, for the entirety of her life, and then some: The chocolates actually outlived their owner, who died in 2007 at the age of 99. Since then, her niece (who prefers to remain anonymous) has been the sole keeper of the chocolates. Until now, that is.

This week, the century-old box of chocolates will go up for auction at Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall, England. The official auction date is set for December 19. Auctioneers estimate that the antique sweet could sell for something between £70-£100, or approximately $93-$133.

The chocolates themselves appear to still be intact, as do the clothes that adorn them, though they're covered in a white chalky film that belies their age. Would I eat them? Most definitely not. Would I buy them at auction? Perhaps… if I was chocolate obsessed and had a spare hundred lying around. Best of luck to whoever walks away with this vintage treat.
