Simply adore food?

Live to eat, and not eat to live?

Would totally marry a packet of Jia Yuen’s Salted Egg Buttermilk Chicken Rice if it were legal?

Well, while I can’t quite promise you a legitimate wedding cert, I can offer you the next best thing:

Uber-realistic food key chains that will make you feel satiated, loved and satiated everywhere you go.

Can you tell the difference?

Because I definitely can’t.

The personal ‘properties’ of Facebook user Minna Vu, the keychains were brought to the attention of Facebook community group Eat N Go, and they instantly caused a ‘stir’.

The post, which has been up for a mere two days, has already accumulated 12K shares.

She also posted a rather snarky comment alongside the picture:

We’ve often waited for tomorrow for a meal with our family. But what if tomorrow never comes? Watch this and you'll understand:

“One of these nights, I know a drunk fool is gonna try to eat my new keychains.”

Well, call me a drunk fool if you will…

But I think I will have those keychains for dinner tonight.

Netizens react

Suffice it to say; Netizens largely reacted like me, with comments to match:

One also suggested a surprisingly functional use for the keychains.

Though whether you want slobbering wet keychains wherever you go is an entirely different issue altogether.

One also inquired about the original sales location, to which Minna replied:

Considering how fake food craft is serious business in Japan, and essentially a multi-billion yen industry, it really should come as no surprise to how authentic the keychains look.

Incidentally, according to Mothership, Japan’s more popular fake food store does seem to serve Minna’s version of chicken wings.

Though then again, it would appear that Minna’s version looks just slightly more authentic.

And so… what’re you waiting for?

If you, like me, fell in love with those keychains at first sight, there’s really no better time.

It’s time to fly over to Tokyo for some authentic food keychains!

But then again, if you’re broke like me…

You’ll probably do better asking your Tokyo-bound friends to nab some for you, turn to Airfrov or even better, purchase from the Fake Food Japan site itself:

Don’t say bojio ah 😉 You can order online here.

Just take note though; it doesn’t come cheap.
