Tokyo-based food and beverage company M.G.K. is offering a special treat for dessert lovers and it takes the form of whipped cream in a can. The Whipped Cream is a Drink (Nama Cream ha Nomimono) is not strictly whipped cream but rather 14% milk fat cream, which offers a much thicker consistency than the average milk- or cream-based beverage.
Alongside the plain version of this whipped cream in a can, the brand is introducing a coffee-flavored version. Both of these beverages from M.G.K. can be enjoyed with the included wide straw.
The whipped cream in a can taps into the fact that many Japanese foods are heavy on liquids, so much so that they could almost be considered beverages. This unconventional dessert further blurs the lines between eating and drinking.
