    Please let's call them "unicorn chocolates."

    A research team led by scientists at ETH Zurich university in Switzerland have created shimmering chocolates that seem to radiate rainbows. They didn't add any colorants to the chocolates, but they did figure out a clever way to imprint a structure on the surface of the candy to give the treats a magical glow.

    "The effect is achieved simply through a surface imprint that produces what the scientists refer to as a structural color," ETH Zurich said in a statement on Thursday. "The process is similar to a chameleon, whose skin surface modulates and disperses light to display specific colors."
