  • So it's made with natural ingredients?

  • That's what the cake looks like.

  • And check it out.

  • This is how they roll it on.

  • So the cakes are rolled like this and you can see they start making like round shape to them which is really unusual.

  • And then they cut them and then they I don't know if you can see that they're they like we'll put the watermelon designed by branding it onto the green cake.

  • Then they fill it with the owners and like I guess that the black chocolate chips would be the seeds.

  • So I'm pretty excited about this.

  • And then it takes some day to they Um package it up and then day three they send it out to us And that's what it's gonna look like hopefully.

  • And it cost us $40.

  • It's look it's for the end of summer.

  • Mhm.

  • Oh inside the box is there anything I think there was some sort of paper here um this is made in chiba once again like right, right down the street.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah, we're not cutting when I got in that watermelon, we're gonna stick with this one.

  • All right, here we go.

  • So just cut it in half I think.

  • Uh Yeah.

  • Is that Michael's Asana is here for the little family party.

  • Hi, can I and Cuddy leo anything love anything.

  • Watermelon flavored.

  • Do they make water flow?

  • Watermelon flavored sake.

  • Really?

  • I don't think so.

  • Is it still frozen?

  • Huh?

  • I don't think so.

  • It's it's yeah, wow, it's beautiful shape.

  • Yeah.

  • Whoa, that's interesting.

  • So the best way that they cut it.

  • I saw this.

  • Yeah, well the seeds are chocolate chip.

  • Oh, it's still kind of it came in the freezer?

  • Oh look at this now, you can see the cross sections.

  • Do you see that?

  • So the bomb?

  • Cool.

  • Then they roll it so it's it's a cake that is continuously rolled and rolled and rolled and on the outside, they use like a green cake to finish it and that's how they do it.

  • And you can see the branding on here.

  • That is super interesting.

  • It's a little bit hard and this part soft.

  • So when they branded it, they really pushed it down.

  • The branding makes a natural black pattern to it because it's sort of burned.

  • This is a cake and it's gonna be delicious.

  • I'm really curious about the pink frosting here.

  • So the way that they cut it, I've seen on the, on the website is like this in threes so that it looks like a slice of watermelon.

  • You want a big size can I?

  • All right, Yeah, this is so cool.

  • This is so cool.

  • What?

  • This is man made.

  • Never mind mother nature.

  • This is the coolest thing.

  • All right.

  • Lucky mas.

  • Do you supposed to eat like this way or?

  • Mm It's cool.

  • Yeah, there's still a little bit of a little frozen, but it is very like a fresh cream.

  • It's not that heavy though.

  • It's got a watermelon taste to it.

  • Okay.

  • I like it.

  • That's so good.

  • Mm hmm.

  • So, it's absolutely there's a butter taste to it.

  • The bomb the cake part.

  • A lot of butter, but it's a cream here.

  • Really delicate.

  • Um, watermelon taste, but very flavorful.

  • They did an amazing job with this and the chocolate chips are just awesome.

  • This is the one watermelon where you, you can't eat the seeds you can see right there.

  • It's crazy.

  • It looks like watermelon.

  • Okay, mm hmm.

  • Okay.

  • Actually, I think it's chocolate monkey, chocolate mochi.

  • I don't know like chocolate barley.

  • It's crunchy.

  • Yeah, very good.

  • I think like yeah, it's probably $40 is really high price for this.

  • But when you think about it, you know we're always in Japan trying to have new experiences with food and you can see japanese culture inside of the food, the details of it and the desire to to make something by that is found in nature but make it like like change.

  • It is really creative.

  • And I think that this bakery, I mean I just really wanted to try it.

  • So today was a very special day.

  • It's also the end of summer and this is a food that we normally would eat during the summertime.

  • So saying goodbye to summer and it is pretty chilly.

  • It's getting chillier outside.

  • Um this is a good way to do it.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • No, but I like it.

  • It's nice after.

  • Was this a rip off?

  • I said no, she said no, it's nice.

  • It's fun.

  • Yeah, there's no price on fun.

  • So there it is right there.

  • That's the bomb cohen cake that we just bought here.

  • Hey Phoebe stubble fields here you are brave to bite it.

  • Cold teeth.

  • Yeah.

  • Hey Jason has been a member for 16 months.

  • Hey leo and can I, Hey Jason.

  • Yeah, so I think it's kind of worth it and if you're, if you're staying in Japan and you're at a hotel you can order this and have it sent to your hotel.

  • But just keep in mind that it takes, it takes more than a few days.

  • Sometimes it can take up to, I think we had to order it two weeks in advance.

  • Right mm So you might have to order two weeks in advance.

  • But it is, it is on, it is on rock 10 and Amazon.

  • So you can't order it pretty easily with your credit card and we had that delivered to us.

  • It came by.

  • Cool been and we put it in the freezer.

  • Cool been is like a frozen delivery service, put it in the freezer and we?

  • D thought it the night before.

  • Um it's really good.

  • It keeps pretty pretty well.

  • And look, I'll be honest with you.

  • A watermelon to the judicial.

  • Yeah watermelons in Japan are kind of expensive anyways you can find up to $200 watermelon.

  • Um that is bread perfectly.

  • The flavor is amazing.

  • The black watermelons of um uh what is the town up in the north?

  • I forget the name of it.

  • Black Watermelons have been Hokkaido.

  • Each one is about $200 that's and that's cheap for that variety.

  • It's pretty crazy.

  • Um, hay bale is here, start to the microwave.

  • Fun bela we're trying not to get a microwave, but it looks like we're gonna have to break down and get one jeremy Booher.

  • I could imagine them making one as a square watermelon jeremy.

  • That is a really good idea.

  • I wonder I'm thinking of going down to Chicago driving down there next month for a project.

  • I want to drive from Kansai airport to Chicago for a main channel edited episode and I think I could stop off in san souci where they make the watermelon see some of my friends and ask them maybe we should be making square watermelon cakes because it would probably be easier to make than a regular square watermelon.

  • A lot of failures with that.

  • A lot of failures that jennifer french is here.

  • Nice to see.

  • Can I and leo kun genki are you genki?

  • Alright, they are genki, thanks for asking.

  • Jennifer french.

  • Yeah, So it looks like everything is uh going well.

  • The, the paralympics ended yesterday, so we don't have that anymore.

  • And Tokyo is going to be having a new prime minister and there's a lot of changes going on here.

  • I think hopefully for the better And I'll be able to start to travel again as soon as the state of emergency ends on the 12th, I'm looking at the calendar.
