ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
These beautiful crayons are made with an array of colorful edible ingredients including marshmallows, dried bananas, bee pollen, and wild sesame. Want.

I wonder if these would go well with dried zombie?
A kid in third grade used to drink ink and eat minty library paste. For the yuk factor. Caryons you say? Piece of cake for our Melvin.
Would giving the green ones to your kids be a good way to trick them into eating their vegetables?
Isn’t bee pollen just, um, pollen?
I predict that a lot more homework will be eaten by dogs.
Hmmm…do you think Skittles could lend Luxirare their slogan for a little while?
A friend of my wife’s has recently started making and selling paint in “botanically crafted colors made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices”, non-toxic, sustainable, and biodegradable, though I don’t see anything on their website about the paint being specifically edible…
But can you color with it?
Because if you can’t, it isn’t really a crayon, is it? It’s just processed extruded vegetable material, like a fruit roll-up.
Umm how edible are these? One of the ingredients is “pebbles”. Yum yum!
@Anon #18: Fruity Pebbles is a children’s breakfast cereal. Not actual pebbles.
Now you can poop in Technicolor!
My dog used to love to eat regular crayons. Taking him for a walk in the pre-pooper-scooper days was a blast.
Wow. I really should not use “pooper-scooper” and “blast” in the same sentence.
Luxirare is awesome.
Great, bring on the mouse and ant infestation at the kindergarten.
crayons were temptingly yummy looking enough already, why did they do this!?!?
C’mon! Who needs this, and why?
I *need* awesome stuff like this. I need it to exist, at the very least.
Because creativity and humour are two of the few things to make life in this screwed up world worth living :/
LOL. I totally agree with lewis stoole. Nom.
Maybe now Calvin will start to appreciate crayons.
I like the idea- these would be fun. I would say I think you should only give these to people over a certain age. I wonder how old young kids need to be to realize that just because some crayons are tasty, not all are.
Maddy says they make crayons from slaughtered horses.
The orange ones may be the only food that lists both dried carrots AND fruity pebbles as ingredients.
I only like this if there is also edible paper. Art you can snack on!
Crayola Crayons have always been edible.
