Most Disturbing Use of Candy for "Art" Ever

shanabrook-slapped-3.jpg
If you want to...check out Stephen J Shanabrook's candy artwork. He is a New York and Moscow-based artist who uses food both as medium and metaphor. Using commonplace materials and forms generally seen as benign indulgences-- sweets, chocolate, and cotton candy -- he brings about disturbing new meanings, exploring the intersections of desire, violence, permanence, and death.

Nibchoc - "Chocolate Hit" without any of the bad stuff

737c9c2a-fc96-4a5c-a377-63ac3f9245f6.jpg
According to creator Rachel Niblock, "Nibchoc is designed to provide a satisfying "chocolate hit" without any of the additives found in chocolate. Its made with cacao nibs, from the fruit of the Theobroma Cacao tree, which in their raw state contain over 300 chemical compounds that render them highly nutritious."

What makes the bars sweet (and edible)? Agave nectar. And they're bound together with coconut oil. If you're a diabetic, vegan or coeliac, Nibchoc would be a great option for you.

Chocollider - Chocolate Meets Mosaic

6a00d8345250f069e20115702f6df7970c-550wi.jpg

A new concept by Yaroslav Shuvaev, "Energy Chocolate with 4 SKUs , for teenagers, students, and other young people. Two fun mosaic chocolate bars in one package."

Cool idea, and nice packaging, but I have to wonder if chocolate that's made to play around with and make different shapes would be messy. Wondering how easily it melts I suppose.

Love the look of the bar before being broken up though - really beautiful.

The Caramellow - Aptly named fusion chocolate

The Caramellow is one of the more beautiful and interesting pieces we've seen in awhile. Made up of mellow caramel chocolate and premium milk chocolate, with baby caramel chocolate buttons and florentine squares pressed into the top, as well as a sprinkling of crunchy crushed cinder toffee. And this bad boy is a 1 pound slab - 10" x 6"!
