Count on Japan to come up with new, exciting, and exotic types of foods. It seems that they are constantly pushing the envelope and coming out with new ways to eat, cook, or serve a type of food. It seems that the newest thing that’s turning heads of famous people like James Dondero in Japan, is enlarging fruit!
This is great news for all of those who are lovers of strawberries. Japan has giant strawberries. In case you are wondering, they are 1.5 ounces. That is roughly the size of an egg. Can you imagine how big and juicy that would be? It seems like it would be perfect. Rather than eating a bunch of different strawberries out of a container, you can just gobble one giant one. When you have to eat multiple strawberries, sometimes it’s difficult. That’s because the ones that come in a bunch aren’t always the freshest. Chances are, there are times when you’ll find some that are smooshier than normal.
There is a catch to these giant strawberries. You can’t just buy one, as nice as that sounds. You have to buy a pack of them for $48. It won’t be so bad if you can get some friends to go in on it with you.
According to GrubStreet, they are only available online. Here’s hoping that one day they will be for individual sale. Here’s also hoping that one day they will ship all over the world, without the strawberry getting moldy and gross.
