Pokemon Magikarp Snacks Sold In Japan

February 3, 2017


This is the Magikarp (the most powerful and respected of all Pokemon) shaped taiyaki (a fish-shaped cake typically stuffed with bean paste) available from taiyaki speciality shop Kurikoan in Japan. The officially licensed (yes, seriously) snacks cost around $2 and feature the lyrics to Magikarp's theme song on the bags they come in. Eating one is sure to give you great power. Me? I already have great power. Watch this. *tosses pen on floor, waits for coworker to walk by* Hey Phil -- pick that up for me, will you? "Go screw yourself." *turns Phil into a dung beetle -- no, turns Phil into THE LITTLE SHITBALL a dung beetle is rolling* See? I wasn't lying.

Keep going for a couple more shots and Magikarp's official theme song because why not.




Thanks to rebecca, who's got her fingers crossed for Seaking taiyaki next.

    They'll be all soggy from the weeb cream.

    Hey Geekologie - how do you hide the #placement-bottom div just above "Subscribe/Add Disqus to your site/etc"? On my site it shows "Also on [mysite]" with a big ugly block of other comments on other posts..

  • Go to Disqus.
    Go to your site admin.
    Go to settings.
    Go to General.
    Un-tick the box next to Discovery.
    Don't forget to save.
