This zen rock garden is actually a bunch of Japanese sweets

I guess you could say that this box of chocolates totally… rocks? Designer Tomonori Saito has created a line of sweets that resemble the iconic zen rock gardens of Japan. While your typical zen rock garden may evoke relaxation and serenity, this variation also gives you hunger pangs and sweet tooth cravings. The rocks are composed of black sesame while the bed of sand is plain sugar. Who knew zen gardens could be so filling and fattening?

‘Shin-an-ji Rock Garden’, as it’s called, was made to reflect upon one of Japan’s traditions and its slowly fading importance in today’s society. ‘In cities today, people do not have the luxury of gazing at gardens’, Saito explains.
