Here’s a new way to look at our solar system– imagine Mercury as a blend of mango and coconut covering rich lemon ganache. The Rihga Royal Hotel in Japan has relaunched their Chocolate Planets series, which features all of our planets (alas, Pluto, you are no more!) as confectionary delights: the entire set (including the sun) is only 3,800 yen!
Each planet has its own unique flavor, all which sound mouthwateringly delectable: Mercury (coconut mango), Venus (lemon cream), Earth (cocoa), Mars (orange praline), Jupiter (vanilla), Saturn (rum raisin), Uranus (milk tea), Neptune (cappuccino).
If planets aren’t enough to fill your astronomical appetite, check out their meteorite series, which also features interesting flavor combinations like white chocolate with grapefruit and earl grey.
I want to try them all, especially the planets… I can’t get enough ganache in my life! [Via Ufunk.]
