New Dessert Looks Just Like a Giant Drop of Water

They say that we eat with our eyes just as much as we do with our mouths. That's why chefs tend to care so much about plate presentation. That's also why "mixed-together slop" tends not to sell so well. Well, here's a new Japanese dessert that first plays a practical joke on the eye.

Japan's Kinseiken confectionery company have created something called  mizu shingen mochi, which happens to look exactly like a giant drop of water. It won't quench your thirst, however. It's actually a sweetened rice cake made with special water from the Japanese alps. Also, it's pretty chewy (which water isn't.) Now you can have water balloon fights minus those pesky balloons!

If you are in Japan, stop by one of Kinseiken's two locations and try this treat out. It's extremely fragile, so it can only be eaten in-store as it falls to mush within thirty minutes of being made.
