    Oh good, I was just thinking that younger kids should be eating more McDonalds.

    Hamburger flavored candy?  Is that what this says?  I don’t think I’m ready for that.

    This is awesome! I want many of these!!!!

      Bah, I’ll wait till they come out with powdered pork carnitas, organ meats and soft rind flavored in particular, then we’ll see…

    Of course Mum could just teach the kids how to cook buns from scratch with proper dough, and then produce really small ones, and in the same way, make tiny hamburgers from scratch with very finely minced meat.

    Was the cola in some way miniaturized as well?

    • Tyler Riddle says:

      We’d be lucky if mum would teach them how to open a wrapper and take out a pre-made bun, toast it, then open up a package of frozen pre-shapped patties and do something other than microwave them.

        Ah, you’re probably right. Makes me feel old. My toddler son helped me to make lovely wholemeal bread, and by the time he was 11 he’d made his own first batch of REAL ginger beer. Just a shame the glass bottles exploded all over the kitchen …

        Sad but true. Like I recently posted, I know far too many people whose kitchen utensils consist solely of a pot and a can opener.

        Hey, I’m a mom who cooks! My 8-year old daughter knows how to make macaroni and cheese, and pesto spaghetti (her two favorite foods) from scratch. I realize that we’re in the minority, though.
        Also, those powdered candy “foods” are terrifying.

       i’ve done this with my neices and nephews: made wee tiny little buns and mini burgers.  i had them help do everything from scratch.  they had a blast and, years later, look fondly back on “the best burgers we ever had.”  when i’m lucky enough to have kids, they’ll definitely be my little sous chefs.

    I’m not sure what’s more disturbing, the product itself, or how much I want to try it. 

  6. Rider says:

    My niece has one of these microwave things that makes donuts.  I mean how bad could it be? Sure it’s microwaved, but it’s still yummy chocolate cake mix, how bad could it be coming out of microwave.

    The answer is horrible, seriously one of the worst things I have ever tasted.  I think I will pass on the savory version of this.

     “Would you like that Supersized?”

  8. Ryan_T_H says:

    I was really struck by how much thought went into that damn thing. Carefully designed utensils and mixing containers. I’ve eaten actual meals that has less thought put into them.

  9. Judas Peckerwood says:

    Needs more packaging.

  10. LogrusZed says:

    I would say “tastes like a real hamburger” is a pretty gross exaggeration.  Maybe “tastes like a milder version of the flavoring packed you get with beef ramen” would be more accurate.

  11. suburbanhick says:

    Huh? Isn’t that how McDonald’s makes their food-like products?

  12. blueelm says:

    Couldn’t you just make a hamburger? 

  13. Borgonzola says:

    Check out this:

    It’s a similar Japanese food toy game where you make a hamburger meal, but it’s completely inedible.  Crazy.

    ***

    Also on MarimoMarshmallow’s other videos you can check out other edible food kits from Japan, they’re pretty neat.

    Much better than cheeseburger in a can for disaster preparedness.  This version should be a great deal more satisfying to prepare by the glow of artificial light in your bunker, and it has a real shot at being able to turn armageddon into a party!

  15. BombBlastLightingWaltz says:

    It is not surprising the chinese have produced this for western consumption. Soon international monetary standard will be based on the yuan. 

  16. Kevin Pierce says:

    This is the worst segment of How It’s Made, ever.  
    BTW, the best one is “Babies”

  17. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    Yummm, the finest chemicals Delaware’s plants can make

  18. chupsahey says:

     easy to understand illustrated instructions (Japanese language only)

  19. simonbarsinister says:

    The part of me interested in chemistry, polymers, 3D-printing, nano-tech, and Cthulu is fascinated.

    The rest of me that only eats real food, not too much, mostly vegetables is horrified.

  20. Ethan Taliesin Houser says:

    Hell Yeah!  Let’s get these for our brave service men and women overseas!

  21. Marc Mielke says:

    The two cute fat kitty toys totally make the video. 

  22. flickerKuu says:

    And how is this different from what’s normally at fast food places?

  23. selfish says:

    I got one of the sushi version of these kits last time they showed up on here (and then felt guilty, because about a week later, the earthquake happened, but they still sent a note saying “we are trying very hard to send it out, please wait for a little while!” – I would’ve understood if they just took a while instead of sending the note)

    While making it is great fun, in the same way following Japanese instructions to do anything is fun, the food, unbelievably, tastes like puke. SO: buy this, enjoy making it, but then just put it in the bin. 

  24. MetalPorkchop says:

    Concept would be cool if this was play dough, but it’s disgusting that this stuff is edible.  Aren’t people fat and unhealthy enough as is?!  I wonder if the cheese slice is just a Kraft Single, it may as well be.  Do those even have expiration dates?

    It’s sad how many people were freaking out about the raw milk, but somehow this is acceptable.
