Pokémon Go's Popularity Brought Us Some Awesome Poké Food

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
