A canopic jar, made from hard sugar paste lined with chocolate, contains a clear jelly solution in which is suspended anatomically correct marzipan and fondant replicas of the real things.

       Needs a better name. Maybe Cocoanopic?

       Or maybe "Canopic'n'mix" ?

       Nononononono, nono, no, the whole point of this idea is that is is utterly industinguisgable from the real thing until you take a bite. That has to include the name as well.

       Ah, I see. But who in their right mind would bite into (what they think is) a real canopic jar?

       One in a thousand actually will be a real caponic jar, to make it more exciting.

       //caponic jar// That's a small canopic jar specifically for testicles, right?

       Why would it be small?
pocmloc, May 29 2010
  

       [pocmloc] I can understand your confusion, but your experience is atypical. In most individuals, heart & brain are larger than balls.

       //But who in their right mind would bite into (what they think is) a real canopic jar?//   

       One whom would undoubtedly be dissapointed to find that it is not real?

       You could market them as "Canopés"

       Gore d'oeuvres?

       Aprés-tifs?

       Quite depends on present level of booze... If only just about capable of finding and opening a jar, one is faced with the problem of what to do with it. Being that it obviously has something to do with food, biting it seems natural. If however slightly less booze has been consumed, the hunt for bread and a plate would commense and the point would be missed.
