In 1903, a German chocolate company produced a phonograph that played records made of chocolate.

Made by the Stollwerck Chocolate company in Germany, the phonographs were powered by a tiny clock motor made by Junghans, a clock company that is still around to this day. As you would expect, a chocolate record player did not produce music of a very high quality. In addition to poor sound quality, the motor was said to be annoyingly loud. To boot, these machines were too fragile to be handled extensively by children – which would clearly be the target audience for such a product! On the bright side, once all these flaws became too much for a customer, they could always eat their record collection!
