Think You Know Sushi?
Well, even if you do, at first glance you'd still probably think this was the real thing.
But the real fact is, it looks like sushi... but it's not. The glossy looking salmon roe is really apricot flavored gummi eggs, the shrimp is made of white almond filling and has green tea in place of wasabi, the egg omelet is lemon meringue filling tied with dark chocolate. What appears to be sushi rice, is a cookie made from popped rice and even the little soy sauce container is really chocolate.
This "dessert" sushi delicacy is the amazing creation of Suedy's Koo-ki Sushi
And, just in case you were wondering, yes, they've also created sushi-style "tableware" made from chocolate, including a flavored line of chopsticks and gorgeous sake cups.
Talk about a little Sushi "ingenuity" at its finest.
Read more here about how Karen "Suedy" Sasaki and her sister, Janice Murai, stumbled upon this unique idea that actually stemmed from an ad for a national magazine's holiday cookie contest.
