In case you haven’t heard about it yet, there’s a recently released app called Pokémon Go on the market that uses real locations to encourage its users to travel far and wide to collect Pokémon.
Its existence is no doubt the literal manifestation of the ultimate Pokémon fantasy for kids (and young adults) everywhere. But while you’re busy battling every day to claim your rightful place and catch ’em all, you’re going to need some sustenance to keep you going.
I mean c’mon now how many of you are guilty of going somewhere unreasonably far and out of the way just to catch something? Cause I know I am.
Here are seven snacks inspired by the Pokémon universe that you can bring with you on your next adventure. Have fun and “remember to be alert at all times.”
1. (MooMoo) Milk
Harden those bones and get some vitamin D with this essential drink. Serve it cold or have it warm, but fill a glass bottle with your favorite milk to create your very own version of the popular MooMoo milk. Guaranteed to up some HP.
2. Pokémon Ramen
Need something quick and easy while you’re on the go? Candysan.com offers the perfect Pokémon-themed cup noodle ready to be eaten in a mere three minutes.
3. Pikachu Popsicle
Hot day? Head to your nearest ice cream truck to see if they carry any of these shockingly cool treats.
4. Magikarp Taiyaki
Shaped like the common Pokémon we all love to hate, Teriyaki are sold in most international grocery stores and not only come in a variety of flavors, but may also contain ice cream.
5. Pokéball Cheese Wheel
For the more creative Pokéfans out there, check out these directions to transform ordinary Babybel cheese into Pokéballs essential for every adventure.
6. Brock’s Cream Stew
If you’ve been a fan of Pokémon since the show started airing in the 2000s, you’d remember Brock’s iconic cream stew that reoccurred whenever Ash and friends needed a meal break.
#Spoontip: While cream stew can be easily bought, here’s a fanmade recipe to try for authenticity.
7. Apples and Berries
Not sure why, but Pokémons seem to love their fruits. Sub in Cheri, Pecha and Aspear with some cherries, raspberries, and grapes to get the same feel.
