Luxe chocolate company Vosges has partnered with Lionsgate to launch a new line of specially branded Hunger Games truffles and candy bars to promote the new Catching Fire movie. Because nothing says “anarchy and suffering” like biting into a nice, creamy chunk of haut chocolat.
If you’ve never read or seen The Hunger Games, just know there’s a reason they’re not called the “Bougie Candy” Games. Most citizens of the dystopian Panem (future North America) are starving, and those who are lucky enough to live in the affluent Capitol are viewed as heartless and clownish by the rest.
The Vosges line includes $5 chocolate bars inspired by each of Panem’s 12 districts and the goods they produce — a “Mined Salt” milk chocolate bar for District 12’s coal miners, and a “Smoked Chipotle Chili” bar for District 7’s lumberjacks.
There’s also a $225 Capitol Truffle Collection, a $65 Capitol Truffle Mini-Collection, and $8 chocolate bars inspired by main characters Katniss, Effie Trinket, and President Snow. The especially lavish truffle box also comes with small vials of crushed violet petals, pearl dust, gold leaf, and matcha tea so Hunger Games fans can fully bask in their cushy, non-dystopian status this holiday season.
Find the truffles, character bars, and candy bars for Districts 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, and 12 online and at select Vosges distributors and retailers. The rest will accompany the DVD launch in March.
