Fruit salad is always fantastic, but what about wearing it around your neck? Or a pair of ketchup-dipped french fries dangling from your earlobes? How about some marinara pizza as a scarf? A spin through Tokyo’s streets reveals the city’s strange obsession with fake food: restaurants place plastic dishes in their windows to lure diners in for a meal. But one company, Fake Food Hatanaka, is taking the concept one step further—by crafting fake food into jewelry. Located in the city of Saitama, Hatanaka makes jewelry out of “fake food, which creates the feeling of wonderful taste by visually appealing to the customers,” as its site explains. The company has released a line of enticing (and slightly disgusting) bacon ribbon headbands, french-fry earrings, and pizza necklaces. Pieces run from about $15 for a pair of olive earrings to approximately $135 for an elaborate fruit-salad necklace. Click through the gallery to see your favorite food in jewelry form.
