Crazy Japanese poop ice cream: Cute or unappetizing?

15 January 2019 by Jojo

Harajuku is the place to go if you're interested in fashion subcultures and fun and crazy snacks! After Coisof's goth black ice cream it was time for an ice cream in a tint lighter: Harajuku's latest craze is named Unchi-kun and is shaped like poo! (We're hoping that the flavor will be something different..)

The famous 'pile of poo' emoji has become reality with an soft serve ice cream shaped exactly like this neat spiral of poo.

Served in a traditional Japanese-style squat toilet Unchi-kun is proudly waiting with his crown to be eaten. The word unchi is a 'cuter' child-like word to describe poop and -kun is an informal honorific often used for younger boys. This name makes Unchi-kun a lot friendlier already! You can get your own Unchi-kun at the Sweet XO Good Grief Cafe located in Harajuku's busiest shopping street: Takeshita Doori for the affordable price of 650 yen or $5.75!

The question is: What does Unchi-kun taste like? Luckily like rich flavorful chocolate, what a relief! You can also customize your poop soft-serve with the cutest toppings like crowns and bunny ears!

“Kids will enjoy it, and adults will be transported back to a feeling of child-like fun,” boasts the cafe, which developed the dessert in conjunction with Harajuku-based YouTuber Shinako.
