When you think of chocolate, the first words that pop into your head are probably 'delicious' or 'decadent.' But what about innovative? If that doesn't seem like quite the fit then nendo's two new chocolate designs will cause you to expand your vocabulary.
"chocolatexture" bar is a sheet of chocolate divided into twelve faces with each square featuring different textures in the same flavor. The three-dimensional patterns consist of stripes, dots, zig-zags, checkered patterns and wave patterns. The bars are available in five different flavors: milk, strawberry, white, bitter and matcha. Interestingly enough, the bar begs the question, can the texture of food alter our taste perception?
nendo's latest project also provide possibilities for taste discovery, with you as the mixologist. The set comes equipped with five different test tubes (freeze-dried mango and raspberry, popping candy, sugar and chocolate puff), which can be stirred into a flask-shaped chocolate design. Even the flask's cork-colored lid is made of white chocolate.
nendo has redefined chocolate. Can we add visionary to our vocabulary list?
