Revolting chocolate ads.

(click ads, via) "The dark side of sweetness" alright. Which of these ads for CaribĂș bitter chocolate is the sickest? The chick in the meat grinder, or the poisoning of little Sis? Well, creative nit, that's not what a baby chick would look like coming out of meat grinder, that's for sure. But hey, the ads are for adults, right, so I should lighten up? Thing is, if you're advertising food, turning someone's stomach is just a stupid idea. The obvious question here is: did the ads run/are they scheduled to run? The agency, El Garaje Lowe in Lima, Peru, does list full in-house credits at the source, so maybe? Previous disgusting food ad visuals:
Subway's stomach sub.
Orbit's puke-flavored gum.
McDonald's human finger fries.
The Spider-man 3 cobweb cheeseburger.
Manhattan's most disgusting Gyro posters.

Arsenic and malice,
And all that's nice;
That's what little girls are made of.

I think they're brilliant. Like A Series of unfortate events for adults! I'd buy whatever they were selling and normally I abhor all ads!

Love them up, Marlene. There is nothing more completely subjective than the judgement of ads.

What grosses me out is the overly photoshopped and prettified little girl's faces.
