Hepatitis C Chocolates

Ever wanted candy shaped like an infectious viral disease?

These designer chocolates illustrate the inventive protein structure of the hepatitis C virus. A plaster model of the virus was printed as a rapid prototype from a 3D illustration of the virus, from which the chocolates were cast. These delicious truffles do not carry hepatitis C. Each one was lovingly handmade from 72% Belgian roasted cocoa in attempt to befriend the virus.
