Kawaii Neko (Cat) Marshmallows from Japan

I saw these neko (cat) marshmallows on the internet somewhere a few weeks ago and decided I had to check it out!

I am fortunate to live in Japan, because these marshmallows are not sold in stores, kind of like a direct mail-order situation.

However, fear not fellow foreigners!

With their popularity exploding thanks to the internet, the company created a version of their site that caters for foreigners living outside Japan. Their Facebook page also includes tips in English for foreign buyers.

It took about 2 weeks for these to arrive from Nagano to Tokyo, but I imagine it is because of how many orders they have received recently.

The cat marshmallows are my favorite, but the paws are cute, too. They float on top of your hot chocolate or coffee, and while they do eventually melt, they do their job. They entertain you while they’re solid, and taste great once melted.

The texture is just like mochi, and I think they’re the best tasting marshmallows I’ve ever eaten.

I hope you enjoy these pictures, and I hope you’ll think about ordering a box of your own!

    • Thanks for reading! Their website says they ship internationally, but you have to create a profile on another site that gives you a “virtual” Japanese address. It is a mail forwarding service. I am in Japan so I didn’t research that option, I only saw it on their website and their Facebook page.
