Tell her you’ll give her the moon this Valentine’s Day. Then give her this box of chocolates. Close enough.

It’s got the entire solar system in one box. Each chocolate looks like a different planet so although we can’t travel to them yet, we can at least devour them as sweet chocolates.

These striking chocolates were designed by Oki Sato of Nendo. He was named Designer of the Year by Maison et Objet and made this very special set of 9 chocolates for the occasion.

Each represents a Japanese onomatopoeic word that describes texture. There will only be 400 sets of Chocolatexture made and they’ll be sold during a special event held today in Paris.

Remember back when they messed with Coca-Cola and the world freaked out until they changed it back to its original formula? The folks at Cadbury may have missed that memo as they’ve altered the classic Cadbury Creme Eggs sold in the UK. They’re no longer using Dairy Milk, and apparently the taste is different so people are freaking out.

They’ve also changed the package from holding six to five eggs which makes people doubly angry. We’ll have to see if Cadbury learns from Coke and makes it all right for next year.

So, we’ve talked about all kinds of 3D printers that deal with food, but this particular version is definitely among the most marketable.

3D Systems, in conjunction with The Hershey Company, unveiled a 3D chocolate printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas on Tuesday. The CocoJet can create unique geometric chocolate designs through pre-programmed synchronized printing methods. At this moment, there isn’t any word on when the CocoJet will be available commercially, though 3D Systems does plan on making it available to the public.

But just as a heads up, 3D Systems also has a number of other candy printers (like the ChefJet, which retails at around $5,000, or the ChefJet Pro which comes in at $10,000), so the price tag will undoubtedly scare off most ordinary buyers.

Remember our previous post that highlighted how you can make a gingerbread version of the Millennium Falcon? While a gingerbread Falcon might work for all you rebels and nerf herders out there, I know there are plenty of pro-Empire folk who would love to snack on a holiday treat that packs an Imperial punch. Enter the gingerbread Star Destroyer. There’s no way your tastebuds can repel deliciousness of this magnitude!

Twix by the yard

Measuring your candy bar intake just got a whole lot easier. You can buy Twix by the yard now.

Eric Stangel tweeted the above photo which equates 18 twin bar packs of Twix to a Twix Yard. Hopefully they don’t decide to make a king-size version that covers and entire football field.

Thanks to the destruction of the second Death Star, there is an abundance of Stormtrooper helmets floating around the galaxy. Thankfully, they’ve been repurposed as cookie jars. Don’t worry. The heads have been scooped out and everything was sanitized.

It also pairs wonderfully with this Darth Vader Cookie Jar.

Do you remember that scene in The Empire Strikes back when the audience sees the back of Vader’s head when his helmet is being removed? Well, now you can recreate that scene with this awesome Darth Vader Helmet Cookie Jar. But instead of seeing a scarred, wrinkled old man noggin’ when you lift up the helmet, you’ll get to see some delicious cookies! Yeah, cookies are definitely a lot more pleasant.

Officially licensed by Lucasfilm, this highly detailed jar is perfect for holding a vast assortment of snacks for when you finally decide to give into the Dark Side in the middle of the night.

A built-in ice dispenser is convenient during the hot summer months, but at this time of year a candy dispenser is even better. Redditor dericpeace decided to try out the idea and the result is the stuff of childhood dreams.

Literally just came to me the other night, and I said, I don’t really use the ice maker for ice, and I wonder…the next morning I spent about 40 dollars at Rite-Aid, and the woman who checked me out thought I was an idiot. Probably still am, but when I poured in the first batch of reese’s cups, and they just poured out like I hit the candy jackpot, I was beside myself. I love candy, I love making things easier, and making non-useful things (to me) more so. That’s really it.

Clearly, that Rite-Aid cashier doesn’t recognize genius when she sees it.
