Baby Arms Look Like Bread? The Latest Weird Food Trend from Japan
Leave it to Japan to be weird about food again. Not long ago they were making salad look like cake, and now they’re saying bread looks like babies.
For a bit of context, there’s a popular brand of pull-apart bread at 7-Eleven — and if you look at it just right, the rounds of dough look like a baby’s pudgy arm. Naturally, this has inspired a hashtag that translates to #MyBaby’sGotTheBestBreadPhoto with proud parents taking pictures of their infant’s delicious limbs.
Twitter user SchwarzeKatze84 writes, “I created the tag, hope everyone else will look at it. Am I the only one who feels this will become the greatest tag?”
As Buzzfeed points out, Japanese people have been comparing their babies to snacks for a while. Back in December they were squeezing babies’ faces to make them look like rice balls, and not long after that there was a meme of fat baby cheeks looking like Japanese rice cakes.
Kind of takes the phrase “you’re so cute I could eat you up” to a whole new level.
