The chocolate gorilla head was carefully cut in half and served in bowls. I split this with Alec - who I can thank for this gift. Again, like the koala head (yesterday's chocolate of the day), I gave this extra points for the design. The molding of the face was very detailed and realistic. While these chocolates were designed to benefit wildlife; however, the wall trophy-style backing was a bit strange.
