Sarris’ candy makers jokingly created the "Bradie" ball – chocolate football that looks a little deflated.

The hollow, milk chocolate football weighs about 2.5 lbs., they the jokingly said on their Facebook and Twitter pages that the sweet treat’s net weight is, “13 lbs.... Oops! We meant 11.2 lbs.”

The "Bradie," incorrectly spelled on purpose to avoid any legal trouble, is not for sale. Sorry Steelers, Seahawks, and any non-Patriots, fans.
