Have you ever wanted to eat an Xbox controller? If so, that’s a little weird, but Microsoft has your back.
Xbox announced on Monday that, until Dec. 14, fans can enter a sweepstakes to potentially win a package featuring a Wonka-inspired Xbox Series X console as well as some chocolate treats to go with it. All you need to do is follow @Xbox on X (formerly Twitter) and retweet the sweepstakes announcement tweet.
Obviously, the real draw of the package is a special Xbox Series X that looks like a chocolate bar. It is not edible, but considering it’s a $500 console for the price of free, it’s easily the biggest reward in the whole deal. But that’s not why we’re here.
No, we’re here because the winner will also get an edible chocolate Xbox controller. Not only that, but it comes with five unique chocolate truffles that all have names like “Achievement Hunting” and “Wonka for the Win.” Oh, there’s also a burgundy-colored real Xbox controller included in the package, but you can’t eat that one. Or, at least, you shouldn’t.
I can’t decide if this is more or less gross than when Xbox released controllers covered in fake hedgehog fur. But hey, at least someone is trying new things over there.
