    chocolates with mathematical shapes.

    I just read that Smarties are oblate spheroids....

    Smarties are oblate spheroids with a minor axis of about 5 mm (0.2 in) and a major axis of about 12 mm (0.5 in). They come in eight colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, mauve,[2] pink and brown, although the blue variety was temporarily replaced by a white variety in some countries, while an alternative natural colouring dye of the blue colour was being researched

    what other mathematical shapes could be represented in chocolate, in a bag of such things?

    Cones, cubes, bisected cones...?

    Does an egg shape have a mathematical description?

    sort of an oblate spheroid with an off centre middle?

    Could you make a 3D model based upon an equation?
