What is it about Japan that encourages outrageous creativity and a willingness to latch onto crazy trends? The population density maybe? The serenity outside the cities? The history?
Regardless, I find new Japanese products entertaining, if not always practical. Last week, the Epi blog's Amy Sherman pointed readers to the Trends in Japan blog, calling out a handful of food-related products including boob-boosting pudding and beer-built jello.
Seriously, though. Only in Japan.
