Japan Serves Up "Diaper Sushi"!

Infant care products packaged to look like tasty treats

Here’s two tastes that you normally wouldn’t think go great together: diapers and sushi. Yet cleverly designed sushi gift sets containing Pampers plus baby care products are proving to be a big hit.



There’s currently a two month waiting time for orders of “Omutsu Sushi” (moon language for diaper sushi), which use folded diapers for rice and are topped with baby essentials. The sets come in four different sizes ranging in price from around US$56 to US$112 and are produced in association with Wire Mama Magazine.  


We’d like to think there’s actually a sushi bar somewhere where a smiling guy uses his masterful skills to make sushi out of diapers like in the publicity photo below, but that’s probably not the case. 



Hopefully diaper teriyaki (chicken or beef) is in the works soon...in the meantime, DIAPER SUSHI MENU BELOW!
