This would still be delicious as a real apple with caramel oozing out of it

"Edible stones" need a clarification xD. Not found in the wild, presumably...

This is cool, but I would have a problem eating it. My mind would expect savory, but instead get sweet, and that's a jarring experience.

I see someone's already broken off a piece of chocolate. This looks yummy.

In my home town there was a candy maker that made "stone candy" that looked exactly like polished rocks. We used to buy a handful, then head over to a mineralist shop, put the stones in the bins of similar rocks and wait for other customers. When someone would wander up to the bin, we would come by, pick up a "stone" and pop it in our mouths. It was funny until some kid broke a tooth emulating us. Whoops.
