To wit:

The 9 different types of chocolate are made within the same size, 26x26x26mm, featuring pointed tips, hollow interiors, smooth or rough surface textures – and, while the raw materials are identical, the distinctive textures create different tastes.

The nine textures are (from right to left above) : ”tubu-tubu” chunks of smaller chocolate drops; ”sube-sube” smooth edges and corners; “toge-toge” sharp pointed tips; “zara-zara” granular like a file; “goro-goro” fourteen connected small cubes; “fuwa-fuwa” soft and airy with many tiny holes; “suka-suka” a hollow cube with thin walls; “zaku-zaku” alternately placed thin chocolate rods forming a cube and  “poki-poki” a cube frame made of chocolate sticks
