A selection of chocolates shaped to look like animal scat in white cupcake liners.

sometimes awesome things come in gross packages

Nothing says the holidays like chocolate scat! The elves* at Natural Lands are hard at work hand-crafting edible excrement that mimics the poo of native animal species.

Choose from a full-sized scat sampler, or buy single-scat stocking stuffers. All boxes include educational labels on how to identify different kinds of scat.

The Scat Sampler: The sampler includes scat from a variety of animals found in Pennsylvania, including raccoon, red fox, beaver, black bear, Canada Goose, snapping turtle, porcupine, river otter, and skunk. $25/box

Stocking Stuffers: These single-scat boxes make great small gifts. Available in raccoon, black bear, or red fox. $5/box

*In this case, the elves are teenager volunteers who have attended education programs at Crow’s Nest Preserve for many years and are now looking for ways to give something back. All proceeds go toward Crow’s Nest Preserve summer camp scholarships.

SORRY, WE CANNOT SHIP SCAT! (It just doesn’t ship well… it gets all scattered. Get it? Scattered.)

Orders must be placed by Wednesday, December 7, by 9:00 PM.
