A New Pack of Snack Inspired Customs

Combining detailed painting and sculpting techniques, he has transformed these blanks into toys you might want to take a bite out of. The international series has Yakitori for Japan, Cannoli for Italy, Poutine for our friends to north, and more. In addition to more great candy bar customs, Zard sweetens the deal with a 90's treat selection of Wonderball, Gushers, and a Wild Berry Pop Tart. 

To celebrate being in New York for the opening he created a Shake Shack Dunny, a Halal Guys Munny, and a Cart Coffee Cup Munny. The customs will be available at PIQgifts.com the day of the opening. Come to PIQ in Grand Central Terminal this Saturday 2-4pm and see them all.
