Painting with chocolate, artwork has never been so delicious!

I absolutely love this product and one of my favorite things about it is when you lick the chcolate off it doesn't leave behind any stains or sticky residues on my body. I don't have to shower it off afterward and the only reminder of it is the great taste in my mouth. I would compare this to a more erotic Hersheys chocolate syrup due its ability to be painted on a lover's body.
Great taste, Thin and easy to paint, Pretty glass bottle.
Doesn't dry, can get on sheets and clothing.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product is great for a foreplay game and I rarely used food in this way before. Now I understand that sex and chocolate are my two favorite things in the world and combined make for a perfect romantic night!
I make tiny drawings or write things on my lovers body before licking it off. Don't forget to check the ingredients list I included in this review for possible allergies!

The body paint can also be used as an exfoliate, so if you are in need of a face mask why not have one that smells and tastes like Hershey's syrup? After you wash the chocolate off of your skin, it should feel smoother than before.

    • Mood enhancer

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this paint is very smooth and not at all grainy. The product goes on thick and is highly visible. Pouring this product is fairly simple as the opening to the bottle is small and allows for some control over the stream of chocolate.

The chocolate doesn't run and tends to stay in place over the contours of the body.

The paint feels a little sticky but when it is licked off it doesn't leave any residue behind and I couldn't even tell it had been there. If you lick it all off his or her body there shouldn't be any reason for a shower.

The brush is fairly small and can be used to easily paint the chocolate in fine lines. I find that using the brush is better for painting prettier images but you can also pour out the chocolate and use your fingers to draw shapes. When the liquid is poured it doesn't spread and run so you can take a fingers and direct its flow in any pattern you want to put on your lover's skin.

Taste / Aroma

This chocolate smells exactly like the chocolate syrup that is made for ice cream, but less strong. The flavor is the same yet less strong because it is more watery. The syrup isn't grainy and doesn't seem artificial tasting. I don't taste any chemical flavors nor does the chocolate leave behind any aftertaste. The chocolate doesn't leave a greasy or slippery feeling in my mouth like many lubes do.
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste


The product can sit without drying or solidifying for a few hours so it last a long time without the flavor or scent fading. The product itself doesn't have an expiration date nor does it need to be kept refrigerated which is good for discrete lovers!I certainly don't want my roommates eating my body paint. Because of the bottle not having an expiration date I had to snoop around on the internet a bit and finally found that Shunga recommends that all their Shunga Products be replaced after twelve months. I can't imagine having this product for that amount of time and not having used it all up.

I didn't need to re-apply any of the paint because in order to keep from making a mess, all my paintings were small allowing for them to be licked off fairly easily.

I love this product and if you like the taste of chocolate syrup I can't find anything negative to say about it. If you truly want to paint your lovers body in an elaborate design this might not be the product for you. The paint doesn't dry and could run and you will have a mess on your hands. I find that for a night of foreplay nothing is better than painting slowly a little at a time and licking the paint of right after.

This product doesn't absorb into my skin and doesn't leave behind residue on my skin. I didn't smell any chocolate left on the skin after I licked it off. This product is very similar to a watery form of Hershey's chocolate syrup. This is a milk chocolate tasting syrup that isn't too heavy. The paint can be used with the paint brush that comes included or can be painted on with your fingers. This product tastes amazing to me and I am temped to eat it by itself, no need for a partner!

This product will get on sheets and clothing and leave chocolatey stains on everything. This washes off fairly easy by hand or in the wash machine. It can leave sticky spots on your sheets so be wary!

I wouldn't recommended doing huge works of ark with this chocolate because it tends to stay watery for a while and doesn't dry quickly. This actually worked better for me because I don't like edible paints that dry and then have the tendency to crack.

This product comes with a brush with a fine tip and because the chocolate is so smooth you paintings can be as intricate as you want. Personally I love to paint things when my partners eyes are closed and have her guess what I am writing or drawing! This product is a great way to spic up a sex life and prolong foreplay. It's sensual and teases the receiver and it a lot of fun for the painter!

This paint comes in a glass bottle with a rectangular glass base. The bottle's top is black and the painting on the front of the bottle is a round image of the Shunga logo with two lovers embracing. It's discrete and I am pretty sure if kids stumble upon this they won't know what the bottle is for. The back of the bottle comes with a simple explanation on the uses of this body paint.

The sugar of the paint works as a simple exfoliate and because of this you can use this paint not only for foreplay but also for body and face masks. The ingredients list is as follows:

Cocoa Powder
Sodium Citrate
Carmel Color
N&A Flavor (aroma)
Potassium Sorbate (preservative)
Citric Acid
Yellow, Red and Blue FD&C

When I received this bottle it was in a clear plastic bag which didn't contain any spills. The bottle's cap screws on tightly and I can hold the bottle upside down and it doesn't spill. The bottles base also keeps the bottle upright for extra protection against spills.

On the product page the bottle has these property's.

3.5 fl.oz.
0.6 lb

The paint brush is composed of a small piece of foam attached by a small string to a bamboo looking piece of wood. The stick is approximately the same size as a stick used for Shish Kabobs.
    • Does not leak
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative packaging

Special Features

The product itself doesn't add any extra sensations such as warming, tingling, or cold feelings. But the fact that you are licking this product off someone's body and breathing on them definitely provides a warm sensation along with the cooling feeling of the wetness afterward.
Follow-up commentary
This tastes so amazing! I had a few friends over for a party, and we all started doing dares involving this chocolate. We had a lot of fun, and a bunch of friends asked me where they could buy the exact same product. I now have the Strawberry version as well.

I highly recommend this product, and as soon as mine runs out I am buying another!
