Limited edition luxurious dark chocolate Jesus on a cross sprinkled with sea salt. A perfect gift for those who are good enough & lucky
We’re a group of artists and pop culture enthusiasts who want to make the world sweeter and more deliciously irreverent. Through our company SUCRÉ BLEU we’re creating a line of absurdly delicious chocolate figures of our culture’s most revered icons.
Our aim is to provoke, amuse, entertain, and compel you to blurt out: “WTF? This is crazy, awesome, beautiful, weird AND delicious. Why would anyone make that?!”
We pray that this does not offend you. If it does, perhaps you need to eat more chocolate! :)

BRINGING CHOCOLATE JESUS TO LIFE
From the time she was a child, Persia always wanted to create a Jesus made of chocolate and this project will bring her first pop culture infused chocolate to life! Working with darson+darson -specialists, they formed a plan for the concept and design of the first luxury edition chocolate Jesus.
The $10,000 kickstarter goal will produce a limited edition run of 500, five oz dark chocolate (72%) Jesus sculptures sprinkled with sea salt and packaged in archival art boxes (each signed & numbered). This covers the cost of the 200 polycarbonate Jesus moulds, factory production costs (Brooklyn represent!), the chocolate (of course!), in addition to the packaging and shipping.
All Made in the USA!
SEAL OF APPROVAL: Everyone loves darson+darson (including darson+darson). By popular demand, ALL backers of $1 or more will receive a limited edition seal of approval (aka sticker), featuring the most beloved (by cats) duo in America. If you don't know who they are, watch the video above.
BELOVED: All backers of $10 or more will receive a handwritten note from chocolate Jesus himself! This is something you'll want to carry in your wallet next to your heart or put under your pillow - a collectors item.
TOUCHED BY GOD: For backers of $25 or more, you'll receive a limited-edition SUCRÉ BLEU designer t-shirt to flaunt your tasty fashion sensibilities featuring our splatter design censoring Mary. Softly outspoken
BLESSED: All backers of $50 or more will receive a luxurious dark chocolate, sea-salt Jesus neatly encased in an impeccably detailed foil stamped archival box. Only 500 will be made and each will be signed and numbered!
THE HOLY TRINITY & THE HOLY AWESOMENESS: For $100 you'll receive 2 Jesus(es) and 1 t-shirt and if you are looking to get holiday shopping out of the way, you can buy 4 Jesus(es) and receive 2 t-shirts for $200 (a recently added item due to popular request.
SAINTHOOD: For those of you who are really lucky, or just appreciate the ridiculously absurd, you'll have the pleasure of time with darson for a mere $500.
MAGICAL UNICORN: If you are absurdly rich and fancy yourself a god, we will happily recreate your likeness as a limited run chocolate sculpture for pocket change of just $5,000.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
One of the most time consuming aspects of the sculptural chocolate process is the creation of the initial form and moulds. This step was completed over the summer and the 200 polycarbonate moulds are waiting at the chocolate factory ready to be filled with delicious dark chocolate. Working with top chocolatier in Brooklyn, we've already created the protoype and all that is required is a green light!
The prototype of the archival art box has also been completed and the packaging is currently being produced in a factory in Ohio.
The last issue is that chocolate is sensitive to heat (it melts!), which is why we are launching our first product during the colder months of the year, however we have lined up a cold pack supplier for those warm summer months when you want a chocolate Jesus (or other delightfully irreverent chocolate scultpures) to accompany you to the beach.
He is now!
Possibly, but we still advise the use of a floatie.
Jesus is not a hollow idol, in fact, chocolate Jesus is 5 oz of 72% dark chocolate.
He is also sprinkled with sea-salt on the back.
