LG’s Chocolate phone, exclusively available from Verizon Wireless, might be the perfect phone for the Candy Addict in all of us. The phone looks like an iPod, can play mp3s, and comes in four different “flavors”: original, white, mint, and cherry.
The Chocolate commercial shows each flavor getting a candy-like coating on a manufacturing line, while Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” plays in the background. They’re really pushing the candy aspect of this phone. It’s as slim as a candy bar, and Verizon constantly displays the phones wrapped in foil and paper, so they resemble a Hershey’s chocolate bar.
I was curious to see if they carried the candy theme through to the packaging, so I went a-Googling and discovered Gadgetell’s unwrapping of the new (at the time) LG Chocolate phone. Its box is like every other phone on the market. Bummer. They should have at least included a piece of chocolate inside.
