Cermele: Sushi Push Pops...Anyone?
By Joe Cermele
I don't know about you, but when I'm rushing out the door in the morning headed for the boat, I've always been very upset that there is no convenient way to bring along a spicy tuna roll. Not really, but Lucas Furst and Evan Kaye are trying to convince America that sushi has a place in the grab-and-go category right there with beef jerky, sunflower seeds, and granola bars. I, however, am not so sure about this. Here's the story from AOLNews:
Furst and Kaye have developed Sushi Poppers...tubes of sushi rolls pre-dabbed with wasabi. I know, I know, what about the soy sauce? Don't fret, there is a stick of it attached to each tube. Simply push the bottom of the tube to pop the next hunk of sushi forward.
Given that I am a sushi snob, always seeking the restaurants that stock the freshest of the fresh, I'm not so sure I can get behind Sushi Poppers. You store them in the freezer, thaw, and consume. But maybe you can see some Sushi Poppers in your cooler right next to the beer and bait. What do you think? Are you digging the idea of salmon rolls in a tube? - JC
