The world of Pokemon is so vast and powerful that I think we’re still only beginning to realize its influence over the world. But what I saw today takes Pokemon a step even further into entrenching itself into popular culture. Pokemon themed homes exist. Pokemon themed restaurants exist. Movies exist. Video games exist. A television, comic, stuff animal, shirt, pants, hoodie, backpack, sneaker, lunchbox, and everything else in the entire world you can slap a Pokemon character on exists.
Now? Now a Pokemon food exists. While this isn’t the fist time we’ve seen Pokemon themed food, it’s the first time we’ve seen a food incorporate Magikarp. According to Geekologie
This is the Magikarp (the most powerful and respected of all Pokemon) shaped taiyaki (a fish-shaped cake typically stuffed with bean paste) available from taiyaki speciality shop Kurikoan in Japan. The officially licensed (yes, seriously) snacks cost around $2 and feature the lyrics to Magikarp’s theme song on the bags they come in. Eating one is sure to give you great power.
I gotta get my hands on one of these. Hopefully they’ll be coming out in an American market soon.
