Several of the most popular chocolate bars in Japan were recently reimagined as Ikemen characters pwith conceptual illustrations that showcase what the Japanese candy bars might look like if they were real people. Each chocolate bar has a unique taste that is further extended to the character's personality and style.

The Ikemen Lab recently put together designs for chocolate bars based off of the Ikemen dating simulator. Six of the chocolate bars were each converted into desirable bachelors including Choco Flake, Koeda, Dars milk chocolate and three others. The characters take on elements of the packaging with the familiar colors intergrated into their appearance and wardrobe. Each of the characters were voted on by consumers to see which one was most well-liked by the masses.
