Shiba Inu marshmallows

Last week we took a look at some adorable glassware modeled on Japan’s, and the internet’s favorite breed of dog: the Shiba Inu. But pouring yourself a drink in one of the glasses is going to make you want to linger over your beverage as you gaze upon the precious pup, and an extended coffee break or luxurious tea time of course requires some snacks too, right?

So here’s the perfect pairing: heart-meltingly cute Shiba Inu-shaped marshmallows.

Surprisingly, these sweet treats come from Felissimo, the same company that regularly tickles feline fans’ fancy with its cat-related merchandise and munchies. The Shiba Inu marshmallows are a follow-up to Felissimo’s kitty ones from a while back, and they keep the focus on the Shiba Inu’s goofily lovable faces.

It’s hard to look at those silly smiles without wanting to pinch their cheeks, and the softness of the marshmallows should make doing so extra-satisfying. The marshmallows, which are hand-made, are specifically shaped to mimic the dogs’ muzzle.

Since the Shiba is a Japanese breed, it’s only fitting that the marshmallows it’s inspired have a Japanese flavor too. Inside each is a filling of mixed of chocolate and anko (sweet bean paste), which should delight the palates of people raised on either side of the Pacific.

And again, this being Japan, the marshmallows come in an artistically illustrated box, perfect for gift-giving or keeping on display if you’re buying them for yourself.

▼ Felissimo also recommends using the marshmallows as toppings for cakes, parfaits, and other desserts.

The Shiba Inu marshmallows are priced at 1,296 yen for a box of nine, and can be ordered online here. Even Felissimo itself acknowledges that they may never actually get eaten, officially calling them the “too-cute-to-eat marshmallows,” but at least even if you never take a single bite, you’ll have nine delightful dogs smiling at you to fill up your heart while your stomach remains empty.

The artistry is amazing, but, who could bring themselves to eat the treats?
