These plastic wrapped tofu balls showcase an innovative Japanese packaging alternative that is much less detrimental to the environment than many other food packages.

They're like the eco, edible versions of a water balloon! Apparently when you're ready to eat them, you burst them with a pin to release the tofu. The residual packaging ends up being just a tiny little scrap of plastic, leaving waste to a minimum.

If you don't like tofu but want to try throwing your head back like a bird and bursting a liquid meal into your mouth, another company offers a similar concept for pudding. Stats for Poppable Food Packaging Trending: Older & Chilly
