Chocolate with a Purpose

February 9, 2011 at 5:26 pm Leave a comment

Japan is in a chocolate frenzy for Valentine’s Day. It’s a yearly ritual of sending out boxes of lovely aphrodisiacs to friends, loved ones, and even people you don’t care for. I love ogling at the assortment of sweets on Yahoo Japan’s shopping site and finding out what sort of novelty items they have. This is my favorite… edible tools!:

You might not be able to fix your broken radiator, but it still comes in handy whenever your inner cocoa demon attacks. Kobe Frantz produces them as part of their “Car Mania Set V4,” which includes monkey wrenches, nuts and bolts, pliers, a screwdriver and car keys, each made with high-quality couverture chocolate. A dream gift for the sweet-tooth car enthusiast, don’t you think?

For chocolate lovers on a diet, there’s the non-edible dessert camera by Fuvi:

It’s a tiny 3-megapixel toy perfect for keeping in your clutch for a night on the town. Amazingly, it also takes video and connects to your computer with a USB cable. It makes for a good spy camera, too; As you’re snapping shots, everyone will think you’re nibbling on an after-dinner mint!

So what’s your favorite piece of chocolate??
