Braille Chocolate Letters -- April Fool's Day, 2013
Chocolate letters are a popular candy, especially around Easter. But the Netherlands-based Decidon Foundation (which specializes in creating alternative forms of reading for people with sight or reading disabilities) realized there was a gap in the market. There were no chocolate letters for the blind, so they decided to introduce braille chocolate letters.

The braille letters were made of 150 grams of chocolate. They came in a special package, also printed with braille.
