C’mon – admit it… you’ve tasted your Crayolas. And they taste like…well, the way they smell.
Not so with these edible crayons from fashion and food site Luxaire. The colors are just as bold, but the medium itself is totally edible.
Created from dried fruit, seeds, nuts, herbs, and other edibles, including candy, and were created by hand by being pressed in a mold.
Did you know that you can paint candles with crayons? Me either. The entire process is easier than you’d probably think!
