Fake eggs are being used in Japanese convenience store bentos

These "fake eggs" are from Kewpie!

Kewpie says their faux egg took over ten years to create, and was designed for commercial clients who wanted to add raw eggs to their products but were unable to due to health safety concerns. According to the description of the “Petite Egg Yolks” on the official site, these “eggs” turn into an “egg yolk-like sauce” when heated, which resembles the runny egg yolk favoured in dishes like oyakodon.

Yeah they taste just like the real thing as well, nice and rich. Been doing it for a couple of years. Seems pretty obvious if you stop and think about what they're in and how they're stored, not sure why it's suddenly become a social media thing.
