The Hunger Games chocolate bars

Despite the massive scale and family-friendly rating, The Hunger Games, and its excellent new sequel Catching Fire, are both rather grim, powerful films centred on poverty, oppression and teenagers murdering each other to survive.

Yet since they're incredibly profitable blockbusters, there's also the need for numerous tie-ins, some of which aren't perhaps that appropriate...

We've already seen the "fiery" Subway sandwiches and now we have a range of chocolate bars, each linked to a different district. In case you're not aware or need a reminder, a district refers to an impoverished community starved and degraded by the system.

There's also The Capitol Truffle Collection, named after the over-indulgent and sadistic people who force teens to kill, contains 18 different truffles in sets of two and will set you back $225 (£139).

There's also a Katniss bar, which features bacon and salt (?!), and a President Snow one which has orange and caramel, of course. It's all been created by Chicago chocolatier Vosges.

They'll be best enjoyed while watching underprivileged youths murder each other on screen in the new film. Probably.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits cinemas on Thursday
