These gigantic pencil-shaped cheese appetizers are the epitome of what creative food packaging design is, and in my opinion, should be. They are fun, unusual and humorously practical.

The pencil sharpener included in the packaging acts as the grater for this unique cheese design to add to pastas, salads and other dishes. The lead of the pencil is replaced with various flavors such as ruffles, pesto and chilli. Furthermore, the scale on the pencils actually shows portion sizes as well as the calories within each portion.

The Deli Garage is the food label responsible for this brilliant packaging. The pencil cheese product is one of many other quirky designs of this label, and it is surely one for the books.
