I've called time out on my errand/chore slaying to bring you an amusing food item found in the local supermarket.
It's a "piggy back" filled with lotus paste.
And it falls into an enormous uncanny valley. It isn't an impression of a pig, it's molded to look like a pig, a freaking dead pig laid out on the table and ready for roast, complete with buttocks. The eyes are closed because it's DEAD. It's laying down because it's DEAD. It's kinda creepy. I ate the face first.
There's nothing in the plastic base other than a couple of moisture-eating packets. It's peculiar and confronting and I'm not thinking it'll move from the shelves fast. Although you can't go wrong with lotus paste.
Hang on, the Year of the Pig was last year. How old is this thing?
