Counting calories? Worried about your weight or just want to worry less about what you consume?

Instead of bringing his own work of art or interior design object, he supplied visitors with strange and unique faux food filled with the tastes of peppermint, blueberry, cheddar, wasabi or sweet potato (and likewise unusually vibrant colors).

Who knows, this may be the beginning of a healthy alternative future for our favorite junk foods.
