Following the success of its chocolatexture products last year, nendo has continued its exploration of chocolate with the chocolatexturebar created for by | n. Chocolatexture was based on the theme of chocolates with the same raw materials but with diverse textures and different tastes created from those distinctive textures. What was perceived through this latest design by nendo was that, although eating is generally thought of as one action, is actually the taste recognized after going through various procedures such as ‘place on top of the tongue’, ‘bite’, ‘roll inside the mouth’, ‘melt’ and ‘swallow’.
by | n’s chocolatexturebar is a single bar of chocolate, but the surface is divided into 12 faces, each with diverse texture. By tasting each face with the tongue, where one can enjoy a new taste dimension that is unlike any other conventional chocolates. The different three dimensional patterns that create the textures are stripes, dots, zigzags, checkered patterns and wave patterns. There are 5 different chocolate flavors – milk, strawberry, white, bitter and matcha. Chocolates are available for purchase here for 800 JPY each (approximately $7 USD).
