Toy Story’s Little Green Men Turn Into Delicious Japanese Confections

19.October.2018 | FOOD

Toy Story’s beloved three-eyed aliens are the next to be turned into Japanese confections by Tabemas. They will be released on October 26 at 7-Eleven convenience stores across Japan.

 

‘Tabemas’ is an abbreviation of the Japanese words taberareru masukotto, meaning ‘mascots that you can eat.’ It is a Japanese confectionary series that combines well-known characters and Japanese sweets made from ingredients like red bean paste, sugar and rice flour. Their products are hugely popular in Japan and are described as being too cute to eat. They have teamed up with a list of popular faces including Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Rilakkuma, Doraemon and more.

The Little Green Men confections come in two types: a chestnut flavoured version with their instantly-recognisable green body and blue costume, and a purple sweet potato version with hearts in the eyes.

The flavours are easy to enjoy and have that moist taste a lot of wagashi, or Japanese confections have. All of the colours are naturally produced and one confection contains less than 100kcal, making them a healthier choice.

They are great as a snack, gift or for creating your own army of Little Green Men like above. Head to a 7-Eleven in Japan from October 26 and claw one up yourself!
