I can almost hear the ganaching of the Kraken’s beak!

That's so incredible I'd wait at least 5 minutes before eating it all.

I guess it's got no option but to ganache its beak, what with having no teeth and all.

And if you take the chocolate from the ship to make cookies, you get chocolate ship cookies!

On a more serious note, they say that the kraken is 100% chocolate, but does that definition of "chocolate" include an addition of corn or sugar syrup to make it malleable? Or is there some other way of altering the texture without additions?

Chocolate almost always has sugar or some other sweetener in it, and legally can have as little as 20% cacao solids while still being called "chocolate".

The kraken is probably made from modeling chocolate.
