Turn Your Fruit Into a Juice Box With the ‘Gurefuru Chuchu’

Ready to get your juicing habits up? Takara Tomy has come up with a fun way to enjoy fresh fruit juice straight from the fruit itself. The Gurefuru Chuchu product utilizes a “lead” to open up a little hole in your fruit and then you insert the themed character into the top of the fruit, twist him around for a minute or so to churn up the insides, and then take out and use a straw to slurp up the residue.

The product description poses this as both a perfect product for kids and adults alike. Kids may think its fun, and adults can splash some alcohol in the open hole and come up with a pretty fresh fruit cocktail. Here are a few more images, capped with an all too long, yet amusing commercial for the product:

The Juice Box Camera

I spend a good amount on my editorial pedestal here at Foodbeast taking jabs at the average hipster, but when it comes down to it, every time I bring to light a product like this Juice Box Camera, I’m doing nothing but furthering the movement. All that anti-pretentious pretentiousness aside, here’s a look at a 35mm camera disguised as your favorite childhood beverage.

The camera serves partly as a reminder of simpler times, another part joy of 35mm photography, capturing all the warmth and ease of use that comes along with a camera that needs no batteries or setting changes. The straw works as the camera’s shutter, twist the straw to open the shutter and push it down to snap a photo. The plastic lens helps deliver a lo-fi look, while the 28mm wide angle lens gives every photo that coveted vignette effect.

Here’s what shots from the camera can look like:

The camera works best with ISO 800 film, and for those that need more specifics: 28mm f/9.5, 1/100 shutter speed. ($25 @ Photojojo)
