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…]

Pokémon Pikachu Cake Pan

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?

pokemon-beverage-review

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.

Lunch boxes make food taste better. Pokémon lunch boxes that include a a Poké Ball stamp for your sandwich give you a lunch that is the very best, like no lunch ever was. I’m sure that scientists are working around the clock to understand this phenomenon.

This Poké Ball doesn’t hold Pokémon, but it DOES hold snacks like chips and maybe even some dip, which might be better depending on your (stomach’s) viewpoint.

The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

If this Koffing Pokemon pumpkin (with a Meowth-y face) created for an office contest by a mother and daughter duo doesn’t win, Halloween should be canceled.

At the very least the threat of a powerful gunk shot should be enough to sway the judges.

Pokémon Munchlax Lunch Bag

Why the hell does my lunch keep disappearing?

The Pokémon Munchlax Lunch Bag is a teal and cream colored canvas bag in the form of one of the cutest little foodies this side of Kalos. Munchlax will guard your food and try not to eat too much of it in the process, but it can’t help itself sometimes. Can you blame it? Your meal will be safely tucked away inside the spacious main compartment, and not in its fur like a real Munchlax. Good thing, too; it sometimes forgets what it’s storing in there.

And why does this mysterious thief keep leaving the egg salad sandwich? I just don’t get it. [click to continue…]

Fancy a Pokémon donut? Good news! You’ll be able to pick up official Pokémon themed donuts at your local Krispy Kreme! Assuming, of course, that your local Krispy Kreme is in South Korea.

The prices range from 1,800 won (roughly $1.65 USD) to 2,500 won (about $2.30 USD), or you can get a “Pokémon Dozen” for 15,000 won ($16.30 USD) which includes three of each and six original glazed donuts. Nice! Why the hell don’t they do things like this in the states? The best we can do are rogue Pokémon frappuccinos at Starbucks.
