Takara Tomy toy turns your lolipops into ice cream21 March, 2013 by Chad
Check out this new novelty toy from Takara Tomy’s “Okashina” line of food transforming machines. Okashina Ice Candy Chupa Chups claims to transform regular Chupa Chups lolipops into giant ice pop versions of themselves.
Like Okashina Maze Maze, the machine is a collaboration between Takara Tomy and another familiar sweets product. The idea behind Okashina Ice Candy Chupa Chups (おかしなアイスキャンディー チュッパチャプス) is simple enough, you simply add water to the mold machine and spin a Chupa Chups pop of your choice until it dissolves before freezing it in your refrigerator. In typical Japanese fashion though, the people in the video are having way to much fun about it.
Okashina Ice Candy Chupa Chups machines will retail for 1,575 yen. It will be available in stores and at various online retailers starting April 2013.
