Real Things: Bread That Looks Like Watermelons

July 2, 2015


Watermelon bread is bread made with dough that's been colored and rolled in a way that, when baked and sliced, resemble pieces of watermelon. It doesn't taste like watermelon though, it only looks like it. There will be no seed spitting competition after you finish your toast.

The impetus, however, was apparently that kids might not have good appetites during the summer's hot weather. But if bread was watermelon-shaped, children would want to eat it.

Personally, I don't need bread to look like watermelons to eat it. I will eat bread whatever it looks like BECAUSE THAT IS HOW YOU MAKE SANDWICHES. You could make a loaf of bread that looks exactly like a piece of shit and I will still ask you where the cold-cuts, cheese and mayo are with zero hesitation.

Keep going for a bunch more shots and a tutorial in case you want to make your own.

    How did I already know this was Japanese before even looking at the pictures? Because - Japan is crazy.

    Edited to add: If I were a kid and handed a piece of juicy, quenching sweet watermelon on a hot summer day and it turned out to be weird tasting bread I would be so pissed.

    How can you tell when it get's moldy?

    Are the "seeds" raisins? That would make sense. Funny they did not make round bread...

    You're talking about a country where they were so annoyed by round watermelons, they made them square.
