Not From Japan, But Should Be

This is JUST the sorta thing The Big J does in their collective SLEEP! but no, the source link (below) makes no reference to ‘em. With that said, take a look at this great selection of QTE Food! It’s pretty obvy what each item is, but if you’re stumped, check the hover.

HOW Do They DO It? HOW? HOW? HOW? (Shakes Fist At Sky)

Japan can make ANYTHING cute. Let’s flashback a bit.

*Travel agency just for stuffies? Check.

*Cat cafe? Sure thing, boss.

*Train stations? Why not?

*Hamster houses? Got ‘em right ‘chere.

*Little Pikachu dudes? Yep.

*Buses with Teddy Bear Fur? In your face.

*Whoops, almost forgot these ridiculous Pokemon cars. That’s right, I said POKEMON CARS.

And they never let up.

With that said…..

- Andrew Y. (he really did find THIS one) sent us this ‘TocketNews24 link on Cute Food. (Hover deets from RN too.) Munch ‘em or cuddle ‘em—your call.
