The box of chocolates made famous in Forest Gump has been auctioned for $25,000. And it didn't even come with chocolates.

Instead, the Russell Stover box -- which was purchased by Ripley's Believe It or Not! -- is filled with sand. “This was so Tom Hanks could keep it on his lap properly during filming," a rep for Ripley's explains. "Marked 23 ounces, the sand-filled prop actually weighs in at over four pounds."

The box can be seen sitting on Hanks' lap throughout the 1994 flick, most famously when he delivers the line, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get."
