When it comes to chocolate, we thought we had seen it all. From the chocolate stuffed crust pizza to the chocolate chip cookie grilled cheese sandwich and even the chocolate wine, we were content with the world's cocoa-based offerings.

That is, until we heard about Japan's latest and greatest foodie innovation.

Behold, sliced chocolate.

You can add sliced chocolates to crepes...

While sliced chocolate is sadly not readily available in the UK, you can bulk buy 12 packs of five slices online for approximately £18.
