Imagine the scene. You let the dice roll to the table, partially hidden by the tabletop clutter and scowl at the result.
“Bloody dice!” you complain, “I’ll punish you for always rolling to help the players!” and at which point you scoop up the d20 and swallow it down!
Beats a dice prison, right?
There’s a trick, of course. You didn’t just swallow a cheeky d20. You just ate candy.
Germany-based Sugar and Dice Craft are responsible for the colourful collection of sugar dice you see here. The candy polyhedral sugar dice are available in a range of colours.
You can eat these, reassures Sugar and Dice Craft, either as a hard candy bonbon or to let it dissolve in a cup of tea or coffee. They’re made from Isomalt sugar.
We’re also reassured the sugary polyhedral are both gluten-free and vegan-safe. A 20% discount kicks in if you order more than 10 sets at a time.
Oh, one weakness of these sugar dice? They’re not balanced. You can’t reliably use these as your actually gaming dice, and so if you’re going to try and pull the dice swallowing prank, you’ll need to do a switch-a-roo!
