A box of chocolates arranged in random order. They are usually bought on Valentines in a box the shape of a heart. There are several pieces of chocolate that all taste different. When you take one chocolate and eat it, you have no idea which ones are good or nasty so you gamble on which chocolate would be the good one. So before you even touch one of them, its going to be a big surprise. If you pick one thats so nasty that you have to spit it out, you lose.
I just got some gamble chocolate and unfortunately, I bit into the one with toothpaste.
