KIMONOS ON MONDAY: Squeezing out some sweetness with Mion Mukaichi
Time to cool down this blazing hot summer with some light colored floral kimonos, and some creamy sweetness of AKB48 member Mion Mukaichi.
I mean that ice cream thing young Miion is holding …
Papico is a brand of Japanese ice cream treats. Seen here is the “Chocolate Coffee” flavor, although Miion knows that my favorite is “Vanilla Shake” flavor. The company also makes several “seasonal” and “special” flavors each year.
This is an unusual way to package an ice cream treat! Each pack contains two plastic “bottles” that must be broken and twisted open. When I first saw this photo, I did not know the package was ice cream. The top of the bottle looks to me like some type of ladies razor, good for trimming certain sensitive areas, well … you know. My mind wanders when I get hungry.
Papico is popular with both kids and adults, despite the odd packaging. The reward is you can suck out the sweetness from the bottle – but don’t be greedy. You can share the other one. Warning: There are stories of ice cream lovers who have damaged their gums on the plastic, trying to suck out the last, small amounts of sweetness.
Everyone should be as open to trying new things like this 17-year old Team K member.
Miion is wearing a perfect summer kimono combo here. Her hair ornaments and sandals fit the outfit perfectly.
Perfect for sharing with another member. “Everybody Suck” indeed (non-kimono song). Also enjoy how lovely the other members were this day!
