Nendo, from Japan, developed a cool set of chocolates for those artsy folks out there; Edible Chocolate Paint Tubes filled with delicious molten crèmes and caramels. The cacao “pigment” is molded into small paint tubes, formed, then wrapped in individual colored labels, each named after the favors that exist beneath the layer of thick chocolate. The box itself fuses a standard paint container and a touch of elegance, with the label minimally designed. Upon opening the container, you are overwhelmed with a sense of satisfaction knowing that your mouth is in for a delicious treat.
"Chocolates like a set of oil paints. Tubes in a box of paints contain a variety of colors, and these chocolates a variety of flavored syrups. The labels indicate each chocolate’s flavor and also function as wrappers, keeping fingers clean for eating. A design that combines the childhood excitement of opening a new box of paints and the thrill of opening a box of chocolates you’ve been given unexpectedly."
