|Judging by the design quality, I guess Family Mart didn't have the same $200 million budget as the film|
The Buns are sold at Family Mart convenience stores nationwide and are "limited" to 500,000, each costing ¥190 (approx $1.50US).
Don't let the colors fool you. If you were expecting a lime flavored Mike and a bubblegum flavored Sully, you will be highly disappointed. These are savory meat buns and sweet candy-like buns.
|Yep, just meat inside|
Sully and Mike come in two different flavors. The Sully Bun is a soy sauce flavor, whereas the Mike bun has a salt-based flavour.
The dye has no affect on the taste. It tastes just like a normal meat bun. All the appeal is purely cosmetic. By no means does it taste bad. But considering it costs nearly twice as much as a normal bun, I was expecting a little more of a surprise.
Unless you just love Mike and Sully so much that you want to bite into their heads, you're better off sticking with a normal bun.
