Because You Demanded It: Sushi in a Tube


By Cari Martens

Remember yogurt in a tube? (Is that still around?) Well, here’s the latest food in a tube: Sushi.

Meet the Sushi Popper.

While we don’t necessarily recommend taking fresh sushi home from a restaurant (because it can go bad in a hurry), this stuff arrives at your doorstep in a frozen state. Its makers say that the pre-sliced sushi is sealed, frozen and will keep for 30 days or more in the freezer.

Like an ice pop, the Sushi Popper portable tube is pushed up from the bottom and eaten from the top.

It’s available in a wide range of raw and cooked fish varieties. Vegetarian choices are also available—and even dessert flavors! Sold in 6-packs for around $30. Each package contains seven pieces of sushi. The Variety Pack has two California rolls, two Chicken Teriyaki rolls, a Vegetarian roll and a Spicy Shrimp Roll.

It’s shipped free, packed in dry ice. You can click here for more information.
