Valentine’s Day gift idea: New Super Mario Bros. chocolate coin set

When the Aztecs of Mexico first cultivated chocolate, I don’t think they knew exactly what they were unleashing upon the world. It’s universal — human beings love them some chocolate. 2,600 some-odd years later, Nintendo introduced Super Mario Bros. into the world and with it, coin-collecting mania that, much like chocolate, would permeate civilizations across the globe.

So, the marriage of the two should come as no surprise; but it’s hard to not stop and catch your breath at the awesomeness that is this New Super Mario Bros Character Figure and Coin Chocolate 10 set. Each figure (Mario, Luigi, a Koopa Troopa, a mushroom, and a Goomba) comes with a chocolate coin that probably tastes like every other chocolate coin you’ve ever eaten, but gets you that much closer to an extra life.

As the description says, “Give coin chocolate to your friend and get bonus, gain his / her heart!” Basically what they’re trying to say is, giving these as a gift is a guaranteed lay. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this is the perfect gift for that little nerd in your life.
