Galaxy-inspired desserts have always been a popular commodity. Perhaps it is due to the mysterious demeanor of the universe or that we find genuine beauty in starry patterns. Maybe it is due to man's fascination with obtaining knowledge and recent tech advancements in the field of space travel. Possibly, it is all of the above.

A particular Japanese creation stands out amid the recent innovations in galaxy-inspired desserts. The concept for this starry jelly is derived from a competition by Lawson — a popular convenience store chain in Japan. The project called for submissions of galaxy-inspired desserts that pay tribute to Hayabusa2 — an unmanned probe that had reached its destination, the asteroid 'Ryugu,' after a 3.2. billion kilometer journey. One of the food concepts was brought into reality by Lawson and it is a 'Pururu Water Jelly' that has been infused with gold powder.
