The sweet faces of these Japanese kitten-head marshmallows prompt smiles of delight while their fruit-flavored interiors tantalize your taste buds.
“Kitten heads, kitten heads, roly-poly kitten heads. Kitten heads, kitten heads, eat them up, YUM!” Try humming that paraphrased chorus to the tune of Barnes & Barnes' classic novelty hit “Fish Heads” while chowing down on these delicious, bite-sized Japanese sweets... nothing er, demented about that, is there?
The Mini Kitten Marshmallows are packaged in sets of 9 different heads, each one reflecting a different breed of kitten. They're made according to a traditional Japanese recipe featuring egg whites, agar-agar (a natural gelling agent made from algae), and sweet bean filling.
Three flavors are available, including Sweet Bean, Strawberry, and Yuzu – a citrus fruit originally from central China and Tibet. For more information, please visit the Felissimo Nekobu product page but be advised that FDA rules and regulations prohibit their importation into the USA. Presumably fish heads, even roly-poly ones, are still OK.
