I Haz The Fud Now?

No matter what you feed them for dinner…it’s never enough. Or it’s never the right thing. They want what YOU have. And they want it NOW.

How To Make A Hedgehog…

…using just pears and grapes. It’s a fact: Hedgies never tasted so good! (They’re good FOR you, too!)

Bunday: You Say “To-MAY-Toe”…

picdump-1327-21…and I say “To-Mah-Toe.” (DP&F.)

“You Can’t Get Any Cuter Than This,”…

…says Ryan R. And we tend to believe him. “You might like to check this out. She’s a Japanese food artist and painter. Many of her works are based around Ghibli.” (Website here: “Supercute cooking for healthy geeks.”)

Oh. In that case, I’m IN.

GAAAA, We Missed National Cat Day…In Japan???

It was YESTERDAY. (Also known as Nyan Nyan Nyan Day.) Totally missed the mark with this one. (Looking at YOU, Andrew Y.) A thousand apologies. Anyway, how about these? [*Note: Duh, you did this last year. Check the records much? -Ed.]

Cat shaped eclairs. I love me some eclair action, I do indeed. But no way could I eat these.

Skip Valentine’s Day, Head Straight To Easter

Another one just in from The Big J, because, well, while WE sleep here in the US, they keep cranking out the Cute. It seems a well-known donut company whose initials are KK are rolling these out in Japan in 10 days or so, for two bucks each. (Easter is April 5th. As we all know, holidays and donuts go well together over there, right? Halloween, anyone?)

Haven’t Seen Any Whackadoodle Qte Food Lately..

….so leave it to The Big J to serve it up, thanks to Andrew Y. and RocketNews 24. (I actually did see this, but I’ll toss the cred his way.) So, check these out. What we have here seems to be….Parakeet Cakes.

Of course they are.

Quoting RN now, “There’s now a special exhibit going on at the Tokyu Hands Ikebukuro shop until January 22 titled the “Parakeets and their Friends Exhibit (Inko to Nakama-tachi Ten).”

You can also buy these there, too. These limited edition Para-Cakes are made by a place called the Kotori Café, and the set of three cakes is priced at 1,200Y, or a little over $10 US. So you’d better get there fast!

Must.
Go.
To.
Japan.
Soon.

Take Yer Pick- “Zoo,” Or “Aquarium!”

Now, I must admit, the RocketNews24 header (from Andrew Y., manning the Pacific Rim Desk for C.O.) had me confoozed. Admittedly, that’s easy to do. Ask my wife.

OK, so- as far as the names go. Look closely, and you’ll notice that these Buns are shaped like animal or aquatic creatures. That answers that. But what ARE they?

楽天個別_鬼まん0411
Quoting RN, “These lines of confectioneries are sold by Japanese sweets maker Namikoshiken — they’re called the ‘Zoo’ (Dobutsuen) and ‘Aquarium’ (Suizokukan) series of sweet steamed Buns.”

wagashi-4-dobutsuen-four1
They go for between $12 and $13, USD.

wagashi-6-panda-on-hand1
But that means nothing, since once again, you can’t get ’em outside The Big J.

But if you’re in Japan- you’re in luck. As usual.

These Buns Can’t Wait For ‘Tocktober

And that’s because they’re a different KIND of Buns. You eat these Doggy Sausage Bread Buns! (Well, you’re ‘sposed to- but they’re so Cute, you might have a problem with that.) Anyway, Ace Cuteporter Andrew Y. sent this our way. You can make these right at home, and here’s the recipe!
