World War I Soldier's Chocolate Tin To Be Auctioned
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Good morning, I'm Rachel Martin. Some delicious things age well, like a nice bottle of wine. A hundred-year-old chocolate? Probably not. The treat belonged to a British soldier who served in the First World War. Corporal Richard Bullimore won numerous medals for his service but didn't seem to be a fan of chocolate.

The ancient chocolate is going up for auction in the U.K. It's MORNING EDITION.
