Candy that tastes like burgers and fries

I present to you, via wanwan.fm, for the low price of $4.50, the Happy Kitchen Candy Hamburgers kit direct from Japan. And it apparently tastes like the real thing.

You have to spend precious candy-eating minutes preparing all the parts, including microwaving the burger, bun and fries. It’s part toy, part “food.”

    That doesn’t beat the awesomeness of Fruity Oaty Bars.

    My sister used to have a set like this, except that it was McDonald’s branded and produced sweet-tasting “hamburgers.” Very odd.

    ‘Tis@1, thanks. One of my crew members just flipped out and killed everyone in the room. Now we gotta run, probably deal with that zheng qi de gou shi dui, Mr. TV.

    I’m confused – is there some particular reason to eat the candy instead of an actual (miniature) burger and fries? Do the Japanese lack the freeze-drying technology that would allow them to make something similar in terms of the necessary preparatory effort that didn’t start out as a collection of synthetic powders? Is mixing the powder into a paste the entire point? Maybe it’s an issue of cultural translation – I obviously haven’t been watching the right kind of anime to pick up on the cultural tropes that would allow me to make any sense of this.

    I once spent hours looking at Japanese toy/food kit videos. Some of them are made to look real but are inedible. Sort of wantttt
