As you probably know, Japan is the home to a number of bizarre yet intriguing Kit Kat concoctions. Now a coffeehouse called “Pronto” has endeavored to take things to the next level by offering Kit Kat croissants.

The two offerings currently available include milk chocolate and matcha green tea-flavored Kit Kats in the center of a baked croissant. The flavors have been described as “a great contrast to the bitterness of a cup of coffee”. It can also be heated to get it all melty up in there.

Both examples are priced at 170 yen (US$1.40) and are reportedly available at all Pronto location from 7 am to 5:30 pm. However, they will only be around for a limited time.

These Takeaway Marshmallow Pizzas looks like typical margherita, pepperoni, Hawaiian or vegetarian pizzas, but are in reality vanilla flavored marshmallows.

Available in 8″ or 12″ sizes, the products also arrive in a pizza box to help enhance the illusion and confuse your taste buds. Customers can even add an optional, personalized message on the inside of the lid.

Giant pizza s’mores anyone?

Gosse Adema has used LEGO to build a fully functional 3D printer that creates sculptures out of chocolate – and a step by step is available for those who would like one of their own.

The project was originally begun as part of a Remix 2.0 contest for improving existing designs on the Instructables website. The result is an improved version of a decade old device created by a user named Saul, and includes the addition of a chocolate extruder made from a basic syringe.

The Empire might be evil, but they’re big on cookies and candy. In fact, the average Stormtrooper helmet works perfectly as a candy dish (or as a drum if you’re an Ewok).

These cool Star Wars Candy Bowls are perfect for passing out candy this Halloween. You can go with either Darth Vader’s helmet or a Stormtrooper’s helmet. Yeah, I think I’m definitely choosing the Dark Side this Halloween.

Japanese food and craft blogger Caroline has just created the most adorable edibles in the history of ever: Tiny Kawaii Kittens Pawing At Candy Koi Fish!

The overwhelming cuteness of these little cat cakes are magnified as you discover each cat’s personality while trying to “rescue” the fish trapped in gelatin. Either the orange and white kitten had his fill or he just gave up and decided to nap.

I’m overwhelmed with adorable overload.

Vermeer probably never thought that one day people would be eating representations of his masterpiece “Girl With a Pearl Earring”, but that’s exactly what’s happening at L.A.-based Bohnhoff & Kent, where food artists used the painting as the inspiration for one of their signature cake-filled chocolate “gourmet stuffed candy bars”.

As you’ll see by the creative process after the jump, the completely edible creation looks delicious and far too beautiful to eat – meaning your stomach and eyes will be fighting each other as you watch.

With a name like “The Magic Candy Factory” you expect great things. I would say that 3D printed custom gummy candies definitely deliver. German company Katjes teamed up with organic confection entrepreneur Melissa Snover to unveil this fancy 3D printing gummy machine.

The machine allows the user to design their candy using an intuitive iPad-based user interface. The gummy candy is heated while printed, and as each layer cools it hardens to retain the 3D shape. It take about five minutes to print out a 10 gram treat and it’s totally memorizing to watch.

While the ingredients are confidential, Snover confirms the candies are lactose, gluten and gelatin-free, and entirely vegan. Delicious designs can be printed from seven different colors and 10 different flavors including mango, apple, blackberry, and extra sour flavors.

Check out more printed treats and the video demo after the break.

Artist Leon Keer has created some perspective artwork on a boardwalk alongside the Malta Street Art Festival that, when viewed from above, makes the area look like it’s being invaded by giant gummy bears during the Battle of Candyland.

The work features a number of massive gummy bears moving toward a downed comrade, who might have become the victim of a sneak attack launched by one of the equally-sized Swedish Fish that we can only assume are lurking in the nearby waters.

Peeps’ collection of fall flavors will soon expand (in the microwave for sure) with a new Pumpkin Spice offering that will provide a marshmallow texture to the vast pumpkin spice invasion that saturates the season.

The new flavor will take is place along caramel apple and candy corn-flavored Peeps, and are expected to hit shelves on August 31.
