Attention all Americans in Japan, whipped cream in cans is NOW AVAILABLE AT A JUSCO SHOPPING CENTER NEAR YOU!!!
Fear not the Euro-sounding Chantibic brand name, this stuff looks, smells, and lubricates just like Redi Whip! (or so I’m told)
Get your hands on a can NOW, while supplies last – I fear the Japanese palate will reject the simple flavor of pure canned whipped cream and the manufacturers will soon be forced to churn out localized blends:
– Nama Ume flavor! (Great on hamo sushi!)
– Wonderful Wasabi! (Perfect with chu-toro!)
– Dashi (Just spray on a hot bowl of rice for an instant meal!)
– and of course, the old Japanese standby, American Corn! (For hot dogs and hamburgs!)
