Eat your words with candy pens

FIND yourself hankering for a little snack during the midday paperwork?

Wishing you just had a little something to tide you over until dinner?

How about a pen?

While you’ve probably already considered gnawing on your writing utensil, or perhaps you already possess an array of half-masticated pens (guilty!), what would you say to a fully functioning pen made out of candy?

Heck yes!

And you can thank Dave Hakkens, a design student from the Netherlands for envisioning such a brilliant product.

While lamenting the unclean state of his own writing apparatus, Hakkens set out to design a pen worth chewing on.

His pens consist of twenty-two pieces of chewy candy pieces in a range of flavours like watermelon, kiwi and banana.

The candy doesn’t stick or melt in your hands (think of it as a stack of those rocket candies popular at Halloween) and the ink itself is even edible.

My only problem?

Eating the whole thing before I’ve finished my sentence.
