The Best Evangelion 2.0 Snack Swag

Epic snacks for an epic film?


So Gigazine has done several features on products featuring Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, including drinks, noodles, and snacks. I'm not going to copy the whole thing of course, but I did want to pick out a few of my favorites.

My personal favorite drink is the UCC Coffee can with the Petit Eva characters on it. I adore Petit Eva, and not just because its artist, Ryusuke Hamamoto, is a really cool guy who comes out to some of he New York cons. It's just adorable!

Also noteworthy in the drinks is the Mari Illustrious Makinami (seriously, what a middle name. Hippy parents much?) coffee can. I can't help but notice that you don't get to see her little nodes-- the things all the other pilots wear in their hair. But she's definitely decked out as a pilot. Hmm.

Next up are noodles. Mmm, delicious cup ramen. My favorite is the most definitely the char shiu cup ramen. Its box might not feature one of Evangelion's characters, but it has a pull sticker with the Lance of Longinus that corresponds with Unit 00 on the top. As for the food inside, it has fish cakes shaped like AT fields. FISH CAKES SHAPED LIKE AT FIELDS. Who comes up with this stuff? That's brilliant!

And finally, snacks. The AT Field snacks-- which are shaped like AT fields as well –were cute, but I'm going to have to go with the Evangelion Gum Pot, which is basically an EVA-01 head on top of a little jar of cassis-flavord gum. I love cassis. I also love eating gumballs out of giant mech heads. Delicious.

Now, these are just my faves-- there are a lot more at Gigazine's three posts. What are your faves?

All these Evangelion posts, my heart can only take so much :D.
Actually it is a life goal to eventually have some Evangelion marketed coffee.
  Eventually. My favourite based on design would have to be Mari Canned Coffee or the bottled Rei Black-latte.

AT-Field fish cakes do sound quite epic, and I would certainly be up for some.

It just won't feel eva inspired if it doesn't include little images of a comatose asuka I can... umm... hug

 I fined it funny that for such cerebral kind of anime would have so many different marketing items to buy from it.  It would be like if you could buy Donnie Darko Coffee.

I guess why this makes Japan Japan I guess.

I wants Kaworu coffee! I would't drink it, I would just set it next to my bed and tell it I would never pop it's head off.

This is the best.

Coffee in a can is a fantastic invention. Why don't we have more of it in the United States? I'm also positive that Asuka coffee tastes better than normal coffee.

@Gundampilotspaz: I'd love to join your noble petition, but I don't drink ANY kind of coffee.

I didn't even try "Georgia Coffee" when I was in Japan, even though my full name is "Georgia."

>_>
