I'm not quite sure what it is, but something about these chocolate dwarfs really cracks me up. They remind me of the old "weebles wobble, but the don't fall down" roly-poly toys of the 1970s.

The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs font style found on the front of this box was first used in Disney promotions back in 1987 for the 50th Anniversary of the film. It appeared again on posters for the 1993 theatrical re-release and the 1994 VHS home video marketing campaign. A new type face then replaced it with the release of the Platinum DVD in 2001. So it's possible that these unopened chocolates date from the late 1980s or early 90s.
Whatever the actual date may be, one thing is for sure...chocolate dwarfs tend not to stick around too long. So it's pretty amazing these little guys are still with us. Now I just have to figure out a way to store them so they don't melt this summer.
