When I think of pudding, I think chocolate creamy goodness neatly packaged in a Jell-O Snack Pack, but in Japan, pudding is a pre-scrambled boiled egg that’s covered in caramel sauce.
So, if you’re looking for a convenient way to make Japanese-style pudding, then you should check out this nifty egg gizmo from Takara Tomy. Basically, you put your egg in this gyroscope-like, slot machine device and you spin it around for two minutes. Then you boil the egg for 30 minutes, and voila! You have a boiled egg that’s been pre-scrambled while it’s still in the shell.
A quick commercial is available after the break that gives you a rundown on how the machine works. Yes, there’s a talking egg that does a dance number and sings a catchy tune… and no, I don’t think he’s been boiled to death at the end of the commercial, but I’m not entirely sure.
