Those are POKE BALLS. They contain POKEMON!
In case carrying around virtual Pokemon in your smartphone or the upcoming Pokémon Let's Go! Games for Nintendo Switch aren’t enough, you can now incorporate your love of Pokemon (or humor your kids' love) into homemade breakfast.
ThinkGeek is releasing an exclusive Pokémon Poké Ball Waffle Maker for fans of Pokémon and carbohydrates alike —and of course, most people fall somewhere on this diagram or know someone who does. This certainly isn’t the first time the 22-year-old franchise has intersected with food, but this time, A) we’re talking about homemade food instead of special, limited-release cereal or a Pop-Tart, and B) you don’t have to go all the way to Japan to try it.
The waffle maker is officially licensed Pokémon merchandise and retails for $34.99. Its nonstick plates mold batter so that both sides look like a Poké Ball, producing waffles that are about 7 inches in diameter. If you’re handy at mixing stuff together, try coloring some of your waffle batter red (with food dye or beets) to make your Poké Ball breakfast look more realistic.
The fun doesn’t have to stop there, though. Turn those Poké Ball waffles into Grilled Ham and Cheese Waffle Sandwiches or add an unexpected ingredient like brownie mix. For more Pokémon grub, try a Pikachu Bento Box or Pokéball Poke Bowls.
