Pokemon Seaweed Nori

What kid wouldn’t love to open up their lunchbox to find a tub of rice sprinkled with shriveled green seaweed that somewhat resembled Pokemon cartoon characters?

Or maybe they would prefer Hello Kitty seaweed?

Or seaweed designed to make rice look like soccer balls?

Rice Soccer Ball Seaweed

All three odd seaweed products are examples of kirinuki nori, meaning “cut-out seaweed”. They’re also available in generic shapes such as animals, trucks, and airplanes. If I had the patience, the soccer balls actually look like they’d be fun for my 2 year old – although can you really trust seaweed purchased on ebay?

Soccer ball and Hello Kitty are available for purchase here and here. Pokemon seaweed via Kotaku.

    How cool are the football shaped ones? Why doesn’t my sushi bar do them?

    So…this is if we are punishing the kids, right?

    Very clever, very healthy, and completely unappetising. (Oh, yeah, my son adds “Yuk!” – and he usually likes Pokemon)

    hey, I’ve had that seaweed stuff, and it tastes GOOD!
    its salty with a bit of a tuna-ey flavor to it.

    I really don’t like football, but those rice balls are excellent. Might even convert me…

    …nah, nothing is good enough to do that. =P
