Chocolates That Look Like a Set of Oil Paints

These might look like a collection of oil paints but these tubes of “paint” are good enough to eat. Designed by Nendo to look like a set of oils, Chocolate-Paint is a limited edition design created for Seibu Department Store in Japan in hopes of giving you the same childhood excitement you had when you opened up a new box of paints. This time, the surprise is even tastier.


The sets contain tube-shaped chocolates filled with a variety of flavored syrups that are named on each label. The labels act as wrappers that you hold onto while eating so you don’t get your fingers dirty.
