Seems like the international branches of Kentucky Fried Chicken are always getting the cool stuff. KFC Japan chains are now offering One Piece-themed, hand-held ice cream makers for purchasing select combo meals. This is definitely worth it for those Foodbeasts in Japan with a sweet tooth.

For those unfamiliar, One Piece is a long-running anime and manga series from Japan that centers around the pirate Luffy on his quest for the legendary treasure known as One Piece and his never-ending attempt to become the Pirate King. The manga has been around since 1997 and is still running. KFC will be offering three different variations of the ice cream maker: Luffy, Chopper and the main cast of One Piece.

KFCicecreamWith a few well-placed shakes, customers can now make their very own ice cream wherever they go. Whether it’s to the mall, the park, the library, or even to the United States to rub it in our faces, the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, they still have to buy their own ingredients. Come on America, let’s get on those hand-held deep fryers already!
