McDonald’s Japan recently asked customers to guess which Pokemon character would get their own McFlurry flavor. SN24 points out that the choices were: Charmander (habanero), Pikachu (chocolate banana), Squirtle (sparkling Ramune soda), Jigglypuff (white peach), Bulbasaur (broccoli), and Gengar (purple potato).
It appears that McDonald’s went with the safe choice here. Bulbasaur broccoli never stood a chance. [click to continue…]
My guess is that a lot more people would go to the gym if they could use Poké Ball kettlebells that cracked open and spilled out sandwiches and chips. It’s perfect for the Pokémon trainer that needs to cultivate mass. [click to continue…]
Designer Martin Jakobsen first gave us uranium-infused glassware that glows in the dark, but now he’s following that up with another unique glass that’s inspired by Pokemon. The Pball is simply a globe-shaped glass with some silicone parts, but it really pops when a colorful (preferably smoke-enhanced) beverage is added. [click to continue…]

Magikarp has finally become useful for something—food! More specifically, Magikarp is great as a fun spin on the traditional fish-shaped taiyaki cake (custard-filled in this case). They are currently being sold in Japan at Kurikoan shops for 191 yen (US$1.70). Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Okay, so you can get this giant Pikachu Cake Pan, a Poké Ball Cupcake Pan, Pokémon Cookie Cutters and even a Pokémon Cookbook. Truly, we we are living in a golden age for Pokémon party planning.
This silicone pan/mold is the easiest way to make Poké Ball cupcakes. Seriously, a lot easier.
This two-part Poké Ball Cupcake Pan cleverly snaps together to ensure your cake batter stays put while baking. First you’re going to grease the pan, including the rim around the opening at the top of each Poké Ball – that’s important for later. Then you fill in the little Poké Ball shaped molds with a single cake batter or go wild and layer one color of dough on top of a second. Bake it in the oven according to your batter’s instructions, and voila. We predict you’ll have tasty little Poké Balls in less than half an hour. Excess batter will bake out the hole on top, and as long as you remembered to grease around the opening you can easily trim it away. In fact, we suggest you cut that spot flat to keep your tasty Poké Ball from rolling when you serve them. Just don’t throw them at anybody, k?

After several years of classy food reviews, the internet’s most well-dressed food critic, “Report of the Week”, has focused his attention on Starbucks’ new Pokemon Go-themed frappuccino.
The drink, which is available for a limited time, consists of a vanilla bean base with raspberry syrup and freeze-dried blackberries, topped with whipped cream. Although it gets relatively high marks for its smoothie-like texture and “pleasant blend” of flavors, the taste of vanilla is said to be dominant, with the flavor of blackberry being almost non-existent. Beyond this, RotW points out what we were all thinking: the timing of the drink’s release makes no sense, since Pokemon Go is almost done being a thing.
