A Japanese Bakery Is Selling Cat-Shaped Bread Online And It’s Adorable

Ever since the slicing of bread, the next best thing to happen to the humble loaf is that it’s been made to resemble a cat. And we couldn’t be happier with that. The Neko Neko Shokupan bakery in Japan is known for creating some pretty tasty treats that are also very aesthetically pleasing, so it comes as no surprise that this bakery has taken it upon themselves to create something so simple but yet so adorable and Instagramable!

Not only does the Kawaii-inspired bread come out looking picture-perfect, but it’s very tasty as well. And there are variants to it. The loaves of bread are made with Hokkaido-grown flour, and they contain generous amounts of milk, honey, and butter – all of which create the most delightful treat. The Neko Neko Shokupan bakery currently sells its cat bread in three different flavors: plain, chocolate, and azuki. Azuki is a sweet red bean paste that is produced from the azuki beans. It is very commonly used as a filling in many Japanese sweets.

While typically sold through the bakery, the current lockdown restrictions have meant that the bakery has had to take a more virtual approach. Thankfully for its customers that means that you can order your cat bread online!
