Cute Marshmallow Cats Float and Dissolve Inside Coffee Cups


How sweet is this? Imagine looking down at your cup of hot chocolate and seeing this! Nagano, Japan-based marshmallow shop Yawahada is the creator of CafeCat, an adorable package of floating marshmallow cats! For 860 yen (that’s about $8 US dollars), you get two cats and four cat paw prints, two in chocolate and two in vanilla flavor. Not only are they cute, they’re supposedly delicious. The dissolving marshmallow cats can be put in hot soy milk, milk tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

Despite the overwhelming demand, international orders are currently not being taken. The company states on their website that they’re working on a system right now. However, if you plan on visiting Japan sometime soon, you can buy these while you’re there. Just remember to place your order at least three weeks in advance.
