Harvard professor David Edwards unveiled a new version of Le Whif, the world’s only breathable chocolate a few months ago. The new design is biodegradable, organic and contains less than one calorie.
This small tube of chocolate is meant for consumers to “breath” in their mouths and has received an incredible amount of attention since it was disclosed in April 2009.
“Le Whif uses particle engineering to form chocolate in particle sizes that are small enough to become airborne though too large to enter the lungs,” says Professor Edwards, professor of biomedical engineering at Harvard University, lead inventor and founder of ArtScience Labs.
The new Le Whif is available in three flavors: pure chocolate, raspberry chocolate, and mint chocolate. It is available for purchase at www.lewhif.com and in stores around the world for 1.80 euros or approximately US $2.50. It is currently on sale at Le LaboShop, Galeries Lafayette and Colette in Paris.
