Send cookie messages to loved ones you can’t meet with new Japanese service

In the midst of the coronavirus, some companies in Japan have been making employees work from home, and local governments like Tokyo have also been advising residents to avoid social outings and to stay at home instead.

This method of limiting unnecessary interaction is called “social distancing” and is a very necessary step to help combat the spread of the virus. This means, however, that some people often don’t get to meet friends or loved ones while staying at home.

And although most people are just a text or a phone call away if you want to go one step above, Japanese confectionery company Suzette has come up with a way for you to tell your loved ones that you miss them: through messages written on cookies.

The cookies have four messages written in Japanese, all expressing a desire to meet again. They translate into English as “Let’s meet again. Thank you,” “I hope I can meet you again,” “Absence makes us stronger”, and “I value our relationship, from now and forever”.

The cookies come in boxes of 3, 6, or 12. They can be ordered online and sent gift-wrapped to your loved ones’ address.

The confectionery company hopes that despite the recent drop in face-to-face interactions, these cookies can be a way to help people express their feelings to those that they value in life.

A very neat and touching idea. Of course when I was in elementary school my mother was a den mother and she would write my classmates' names with icing.
