Chocolate Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on chocolate puns! 🍫 🐰 🍬 ❤

Chocolate is an internationally loved treat that comes in many forms (bar, truffle, sauce, syrup, chips, pastilles), flavours (strawberry, caramel, mint, etc) and types (milk, dark, white and ruby). As well as enjoying it on its own, we use it as a flavouring for biscuits, breads, and other desserts (like ice cream) and in pastries. We even have a couple of holidays where chocolate is a main feature – Easter and Valentine’s day. It’s everywhere! So help spread the love with our list of chocolate puns.

Unfortunately, the dairy industry that chocolate relies on is not so lovable – it’s a system that profits from abuse and and neglect, with the suffering always ending in death. It’s an industry that we don’t need to participate in, are there are plenty of  dairy-free chocolates that we can enjoy instead (and lots of recipes to try!).

In this list, we’ve tried to include chocolate flavours, shapes, types and related words (like “melt”) as well as the more popular chocolate bar names, brands and manufacturers. So no matter what you’re here for – whether it’s a sweet one-liner, saucy hashtag or a bitterly punny comeback, we hope to have you covered here.

If you’re after related puns, we also have milk puns, coffee puns, ice cream puns, cow puns, candy puns, nut puns and cake puns. We’ve also got a Valentine’s Day pun list and an Easter list!

Candy Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on candy puns! 🍬 🍭 This entry covers general candy-related topics and also specific candy types and brands. Regarding candy brand names, I’ve tried to stick to international brands that most readers would recognise, but there may be a few brands in here which are specific to certain regions. Also, in some cases there is a fine line between candy and dessert, so you may find (what you may class as) dessert puns in this entry too.

Finally, the word “candy” is a North American thing, and so this article’s title might be translated to “sweets puns” or “lolly puns” depending on where you’re from 😉

  • *roc* → *rock*: Some terrible rock candy puns can be made using words containing the “rock” sound.

  • Could bury → Cadbury: As in “I cadbury myself in my work for hours without noticing.” and “You cadbury your head in the sand but it wouldn’t solve the issue.”
  • Kinder: The Kinder Surprise is a famous chocolate egg with a surprise toy inside. Although “Kinder” is pronounced “k-ih-nder”, we still might get away with using it in place of the word “kinder” as in “more kind”. Examples: “You wont find a Kinder soul on Earth.” and “Maybe if you were Kinder to others, then others would be Kinder to you.”

Beer Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on beer puns! 🍻 🍺 Whether you need a name for your latest craft brew, a tagline for your beer-related business, a beer pun team name, or just some beer puns for their own sake, I hope you find this entry useful!

There’s a lot of depth to beer culture and so some of the puns in this entry may go over your head if you’re not a brewer or beer fanatic. I’ve tried to order the pun list so that it starts with general beer puns that most people will understand, and then as you go down the puns should get more obscure. That said, I have not done a perfect job of it, so apologies if there are some confusing ones here and there near the top.

A quick side note: Drinking alcohol gives your brain a reward that it didn’t earn. If you drink too often then your brain learns that the best (easiest) way to feel good is to drink more alcohol, rather than do the normal things that make you feel good (work hard, accomplish things, help others, etc.). Be careful messing with your neurotransmitters! 🙂

  • Sides → Suds: As in “There are two suds to every question.” and “You’ve got to see the issue from both suds.”

  • Lick or → Liquor: As in “Are you going to have a liqu, or?” (Depending on your accent/pronunciation it may more like “lick her”. Please keep your puns respectful!)

  • Growler: A “growler” is a type of jug used to transport draft beer. The term has a bunch of other meanings which could be played upon in the right context.
  • Draught / Draft: Besides the beer-related meaning (beer served from barrel or tank), this term has several others: “He was drafted in 1942″ and “I drafted the letter of resignation.” and “The use of draft horses is outdated and cruel.” and “There was a nice draught coming through the window.” and “She was drafted for the national team at age 23.”
