Sushi cream puffs?

Good morning everyone,

It's looking like we'll see mostly grey skies today with a chance of rain tomorrow and then we may see some sun on Thursday and Friday before the cloudy weather returns for the weekend.

Let’s travel back to the summer of 2016. This was when popular revolving sushi chain Kurazushi released Shari Cola on an unsuspecting public. “Shari” is the name of the rice used in sushi which is flavored with a special vinegar to give it a sweet taste.

People flocked to Kurazushi to give it a try only to realize that, aside from a slightly filmy texture, Shari Cola isn’t all that far off from regular cola. It makes sense, as in both cases we’re really just drinking a load of sugar with some added tangy and spicy flavors.

Still, it turned out to be a success, and to celebrate its one year on the market, Kurazushi has transferred the taste of shari into yet another foodstuff: Shari Cola Cream Puffs.

Yes, Shari Cola Cream Puffs take the great taste of vinegared rice and condenses it into a carbonated beverage, which is then condensed yet again into cream and injected into a tender pastry, just as nature intended...ha ha!

To put it more specifically: high quality rice is malted and fermented in a similar process used to make the very sweet drink amazake. A bit of vinegar, some carbonation, and other special ingredients are added for good measure giving you Shari Cola. This beloved drink is then mixed into some whipped cream and placed inside choux pastry.

By now you can see sushi cream puffs are not nearly as weird as they sound, so you better run out to your local Japanese supermarket and get one for 108 yen fast because quantities are limited. If you’re too late, however, fear not. You can still enjoy a nice Shari Cola Shaved Ice on sale well into September.

Failing that, you’ll just have to wait until the two-year anniversary when the Shari Cola Filled Candy Coated Cream Puff Flavored Cupcake Topped Curry Bread Megaburgerpizza Salad or some other mixed up jumble of food with shari cola flavor is released...ha ha!

Are you tempted to try these choux cream puffs? I am...a little. But only if I happen to come across them somewhere. I'm not going to actually go looking for them.

Have a great day!
