The Noble Chafer Beetle is one of my personal favourite chocolate animals that we make here at The Edible Museum.

From its detailed legs and antennae to its striking, metallic green body this piece is an enchanting chocolate art work to gift someone with a taste for the unusual.

It is all chocolate, the beetle and frame too, so plenty to share with your entomology friends. We hand paint all the details and it takes a lot of training before we get promoted to leg painters here in the workshop! 

If you like this then you might like our Chocolate Dung Beetle too.


More about this vulnerable species:

As its habitat reduces, the Noble Chafer beetle is becoming increasingly rare and is classified as 'Vulnerable', which means it has a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

This beautiful beetle prefers traditional orchards that contain mature fruit trees of 50 to 80 years old. These sites are often cleared as the trees reach the end of their productive life.

Thanks to PTES for the above information.

European delivery:

  • Sadly, since Brexit, fees are involved when exporting goods from the UK to the EU. The fees differ in each country and are impossible to calculate until we have: your desired order, the full shipping address, phone number and email address of recipient.

Calculating the fees is so arduous that I currently do not offer shipping to the EU as standard.

However, if you email me with all this info and have a little patience then I shall figure it out for you because you are clearly committed!

USA, Canada, Australia delivery:

  • We ship via courier only and use UPS and FedEx (if they have any issues, we will use another reputable courier) Parcels typically take 48 hours once dispatched and you will be sent tracking details.
  • Courier fees depend on the weight, size, and destination of your order. To get an accurate cost please add your items to cart then enter your shipping address and zip code in the checkout area. This will calculate your unique shipping cost.
  • In stock items will be dispatched Monday to Wednesday 
  • Unfortunately, we cannot ship to PO Boxes.
