‘Mizu Shingen Mochi’ is a new breed of Japanese rice cake that’s bound to get people scratching their heads and wondering what the hell they ordered. Though it might look like a water droplet served fancy, it’s actually a cake that uses water harnessed from the Japanese Alps!

Its makers say it’s like a traditional dessert mocha – sweet, usually sprinkled with kinako soybean powder and partnered with brown sugar syrup – except, you know, this one looks like a water droplet. If that’s not drool-worthy enough for you, the cake even melts in your mouth! Those who have tasted the treat went on Twitter, saying it’s ‘refreshingly cool’ and ‘tasty.

You have limited time to take selfies and food porn photos with it, though. Its consistency only allows it to take form for 30 minutes, before finally disintegrating into plain, old water.
