This Japanese Dessert Looks Like a Cube of Water

first_imgStay on target The Japanese certainly know about food presentation. From their fanciest restaurants all the way down to their convenience stores, dishes are designed to not only be tasty, but aesthetically pleasing.These gel desserts are a great example of this trend. Only available at the Natural Lawson chain of convenience stores, the Ramune-kan and Lemon-kan gelatin desserts have refinement and presentation far beyond their 299 yen ($2.70) price tag.Both desserts are placed on a meringue base. The blue one, Ramune-kan is decorated with gold glitter and made with the taste of the soda in mind, bringing to mind citrus and apple. The yellow one, Lemon-kan is even fancier, with a slice of lemon placed between the gelatin and the meringue base to give it that extra bite.via twitter.com/NatsuKazeOtokoOnce you take a bite, you can transform the gel-like dessert into a different shape you can gaze at while you devour the rest. If it were me, personally, I wouldn’t leave enough of the gel-like dessert for there to be any left for me to bite into. I’m all about diving right into my food and taking big chunks out of it, because I’m garbage, and I love sweets.These are very cool desserts, and I wish we had more things like this in the states. I’m lucky to find an ice cream sandwich that hasn’t been smooshed at my local convenience store. I don’t think I’d want to try these particular flavors, but maybe a cherry or some kind of red berry would do the trick for me. Chocolate and meringue go together, so a mousse-like gel would be even more appealing.via twitter.com/NatsuKazeOtokoIf you’re jonesing for one of these very cool treats, you can probably make your own if you’re handy with Jello, though it may not look exactly like the ones pictured here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
