Calorie Count
Smart chocolate concept from L'Agenzia per il Disegno e la Funzione out of Torino, Italy. Each portion is stamped with its corresponding calorie count. If they listed the ingredients on the bar's backside, could they go without designing a wrapper?

Comic Relief
Jean Galler teamed up with Brussels born cartoonist Philippe Geluck to grace Belgian chocolate with the star of the famed strip Le Chat. The
cerebral feline who is known to don a jacket, tackle philosophy and even indulge in a cigar or two may look a bit goofey here but as long as he's made of creamy Belgian 70% dark and milk Fair Trade, I choose to take him seriously.

Chocolate Chuck's
Love this white chocolate nod to the classic Chuck
Taylor by Barcelona based Xoxoa though not sure if the laces are edible.

Castilian Cocoa
Xoxoa, the Barcelona based chocolate chain is super cool. The online destination alone offers a ton to look at including signature chocolate packaging by famed illustrator Jordi Labanda and the most adorable chocolate sneakers I've seen thus far. I was entranced by the chocolate lovers soundtrack and the site's trippy graphics which transport you to a virtual chocolate rave. Picture yourself in a posh Barcelona lounge being presented with well dressed chocolate by cool customers in vintage Custo. Disfruta!

Chuao's Fashion Faux Pas
I couldn't help but chuckle when I came across the ChocoPod Purse. According to Chuao (who I love by the way) this is every woman's dream. That is if that woman were dreaming she were still 6 years old and had received this as a birthday party favor. The multi-colored take on Chuao's signature chocolate pod pattern is supposed to be inspired by the much adored Murakami Louis Vuitton collaboration and while I'm all for the marriage of chocolate and fashion, I'm feeling like this will land you on the wost dressed chocolate list.
