The box is decorated with the image of Queen Victoria, her insignia and the words South Africa, 1900.
In Britain sells chocolate, which was made during the reign of Queen Victoria in 1899. A box of treats went under the hammer for $563, writes Metro.
Rowntree’s product containing several chocolate bars was recently found in a trash box in someone’s attic in Lincolnshire.
The chocolate is believed to have belonged to the Immingham owner’s grandfather, who fought in the war and received a gift but never ate it.
Auctioneer Paul Cooper of Eddisons advises that no one will do so in 2022.
“No matter how wonderful it looks, I don’t think I will be tempted to try it. Experts say that chocolate does not really become dangerous with age, it just loses its aroma, texture and taste. However, it is likely that ‘ what 122-year-old bars mean! Of course, military and Boer War buffs who bid to add this rarity to their collections wouldn’t dream of eating such a treasure,” said expert.
