Pokémon Go's Popularity Brought Us Some Awesome Poké Food

By Danielle Dieterich | August 22, 2016

An Australian restaurant, Down N' Out, came up with an adorable Pokémon special. These Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander burgers look delicious and hilarious. And let's face it — there's a certain appeal in being able to say you ate Pikachu for lunch.

 

 

As impressive as these are, they're just a drop in the bucket of Pokémon-themed food. After everyone got obsessed with Pokémon Go, surprisingly elaborate Pokémon food creations started popping up all over the place.

Starbucks made a Pokéball Frappuccino.

Look how tiny and cute these macarons are!

 

gotta EAT em all -------------------------------------------------- @thefoodadvenchers got lured by these sightings of Pokemon Macarons @mrsgrahamscafe -------------------------------------------------- REPORT CARD RATING Taste: A 📝 A single bite gives you a sweet crunchy crust plus smooth and firm filling in different flavors. Pikachu tasted like your usual salted caramel macaron with a distinct sweet taste. We enjoyed Pikachu more than Clefairy Macha Rose because the latter was like in the borderline of tasting like rose perfume. Moreover, we had a hard time eating it because hey, they are Pokemons! Price: A 📝 It was fair enough for P50 for Pikachu and Clefairy and P60-P75 for the bigger ones including the Pokeball Macaron. Presentation: A+ 📝 Effective marketing strategy because for sure, Team Mystic, Instinct, and Valor will hunt all night with all their might for this. ------------------------------------------------ Scale from highest to lowest (A+ A B+ B C D F) FINAL GRADE: 🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖 A🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖 I wanna EAT the very best, like nothing ever was. ------------------------------------------------ #thefoodadvenchers #spotph #forkspoonmanila #zomatoph #wheninmanila #bookymanila #vsco #thefoodcrawlers #looloo #pepperph #whattoeatph #bookyapp #gourmanila #foodph #food #foodie #foodporn #foodpics #foodstagram #foodies #lovefood #love_food #f52 #f52grams #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #mrsgrahams #pokemonmacarons #pokemongo #pokemon
