Japanese confectionery company Kimura Seika has created genital-themed desserts as gifts for newlyweds.
Dubbed Inyo Manju, the Japanese traditional dessert is made out of dough with a sweet red bean filling and walnuts. However, the shop has decided to make it cheeky by molding the dough into what it claims are “a matsutake mushroom” and a “fruit of the chocolate vine.” Both designs “coincidentally” appear to look like vagina and penis-shaped cakes.
The Inyo Manju is said to be inspired by the rocks that were found nearby the Inyo Shrine. The rocks were said to resemble the male and female genitalia.
Priced at ¥1,000 (US$9.59) for a box of 12, the manju is available to purchase at Kimura Seika in Ibaraki Prefecture.
