These 'Pokémon' Eevee-Themed Sponge Cakes Are an Absolute Treat
Eat the pastry as is or put it in the freezer to turn it into ice cream.
Pokémon has teamed up with Japan-based confectionery brand Tokyo Banana on an Eevee-inspired dessert. For those who aren’t familiar, Tokyo Banana is known for its banana-shaped sponge cake that comes with a delicious cream filling.
Instead of the usual custard flavor, the collaborative cake is infused with notes of caramel macchiato. The treat features one of six patterns of Eevee, five with the character smiling, and the last showcasing the Pocket Monster’s tail. True Pokémon fans will notice the heart-shaped cleft detail on the tail’s tip, indicating a female Eevee. Arriving in packs of two, the product is wrapped in packaging with six different Eevee illustrations on the front.
Aside from eating them as is, Tokyo Banana suggests freezing the cakes, which turns them into an ice cream-like dessert. An alternative method you could try is to toast it, making it taste like French toast.
The two-pack Eevee Tokyo Banana retails for ¥291 JPY (approximately $2.80 USD) and will be available at all 7-Eleven stores in Japan on January 2, 2021.
