Japanese confectionery series Tabemasu makes Kirby and the Warp Star!

20.April.2019 | FOOD

 Tabemasu is a Japanese confectionery series that features sweets designed to look like characters. A new Tabemasu series is about to be released called Tabemasu Asorto (Tabemasu assortment). The design for this series is based around Kirby, Kirby’s Dream Land and the Warp Star which Kirby rides in the game. This series will be released on Tuesday 23rd April 2019. Tabemasu has plans to release another round of the Tabemasu Asorto series later!

 

The new Tabemasu Asorto series includes two traditional Japanese-style sweets in a set. The sweets are based on the world of Kirby. Kirby comes in the form of a chewy mochi sweet, and the Warp Star comes in the form of a soft, nerikiri sweet.

 

The name “Tabemasu” is a combination of the word “tabemasu” (eat) and “mascot”. As the name implies, the entire sweet is made from traditional Japanese ingredients, and so you can consume it all!

 

 

 

 Kirby is a chewy pink ball of mochi dough filled with custard cream. There are a range of expressions to choose from, from smiley Kirby to sleepy Kirby and even a winking Kirby! There is also one secret design! There are six Kirby designs in total. Which of these squishy, round, cute Kirbys will you encounter? You’ll just have to head to the store to get one to find out!

 The Warp Star is a chocolate cream nerikiri. Both the sweets are made with natural colourings. Put your squishy Kirby on the Warp Star to enjoy an image straight out of the game! Of course you won’t be able to help but take photos of this edible mascot before eating it! Don’t forget to post your pictures on social media!

 

 You have to try this cute, photogenic Kirby!
