Chocolate lovers, get ready for a totally new way to experience your favorite treat! Japanese design company Nendo has created the 鈥渃hocolatetexturebar,鈥 which will please your palate in more ways than one.

Introduced in 2015, the 鈥渃hocolatetexturebar鈥 鈥 which comes in milk chocolate, strawberry, white chocolate, bitter chocolate and matcha flavors 鈥 includes 12 snap-off sections that each use unique textures meant to alter and enhance the experience of eating the various chocolates.

Nendo鈥檚 website explains: 鈥溾 although 鈥榚ating鈥 is generally thought of as one action, actually the taste is recognized after going through various procedures such as 鈥榩lace on top of the tongue,鈥 鈥榖ite,鈥 鈥榬oll inside the mouth,鈥 鈥榤elt鈥 and 鈥榮wallow.鈥 鈥榗hocolatexturebar鈥 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鈥 one can enjoy a new taste dimension that is unlike any other conventional chocolates.鈥

But why stop there with the chocolate-lovin鈥 brilliance? Nendo has also created a 鈥渃hocolamixture鈥 set which is not only adorable, but also gives you even more flavor options by mixing their capsuled concoctions of yumminess in chocolate flasks topped with white-chocolate corks.

Unfortunately, this textured treat is currently only available in Japan, but no doubt a full-force drool-fest from other countries may convince the creators to start shipping worldwide. *fingers crossed*
