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

Sushi is near the top of the list of things which you make and eat the same day. Have you ever considered frying an egg and saving it for tomorrow? I hope not. Each roll should come soy and a roll of toilet paper.

On the flip side... Where was this idea when we were fighting the Japs in WWII?

They need to do that with fishbait, no mess powerbait applicator with option gulp liquid attached to the side of the tube.....

this just seems soo wrong in soo many ways. I like sashimi, but this? No, just No.

Clever idea, but I think I'll pass. I prefer sashimi or ceviche anyway. So a little soy sauce or a lime in my pocket and a clean knife is all I need--today's fresh catch may never make it back to the dock.

Always handy if you run out of bait.

We have a few sushi bars that sell fresh sushi to go in small plastic trays. I prefer eating mine with chopsticks - unnerves the person in the next car. Can't imagine eating frozen and unfrozen sushi rolls (doesn't that mean the tuna is frozen twice?)

Ick. I can only imagine what kind of condition that thing would be in when thawed: mushy nori, mushy rice and mushy vegetables...

Next time you post info on a food item, try it first, that is like writing about a safari and never been on one-like this-Walmart sushi-if you like California rolls there c.rolls are almost as good as anyone's else, if you enjoy sashimi, or any sushi that has a raw fillet in it then don't get it at walmart in the interior states. On second thought it could double as logger head snapper turtle bait, if your into that.

JC, Dude...I would never belittle anothers' preference, especially when it comes to groceries...but you set yourself up for this one. If you look up Sushi in my dictionary, the definition is raw fish. I fish the inland salt water of Puget Sound, it's river inlets and the Chartered Deep Waters off the coast of Washington State. I use raw fish, in other words...BAIT. 'NUF SAID.

I will try everything at least once (twice if I've been drinking and can't remember I already did) but this is odd. I like the powerbait idea though. THIS REMINDS ME WAAAAY TOO MUCH OF A TAMPON nothanks.

I'm 23 and have little regard for what goes in my body. I could easily see myself eating many of these. Throw a couple frozen sticks on the dashboard while stream fishing for smallies. Come back a few ours later and have lunch. I need to drop a few pounds anyway, maybe food poisoning has it's advantages.

we have all heard the stories of bad sushi and food poisoning its not a guarantee but this really just begs to live up to this stereotype of sushi getting you sick. I bet if it stuck together it would catch cat fish like crazy. lol so many things that can be made quick and on the go sushi is not one of them.

Squirellgirl's comment cracked me up, but i'm not going to take that comment to the next level! LOL Maybe some other time--adults only after a few adult beverages for lubrication. My humorous contemplations would be inappropriate in this context.

In Michael Pollan's latest book he makes a really great point, "If your Grandma wouldn't recognize it as food, then it probably isn't good for you or the planet." In this case, I think our planet is the one taking the hit.

Don't get me wrong, I love sushi, but seems like pretty energy intensive food considering the state of our world's oceans.

For those of you who won't eat sushi or sashimi in the "interior states" because you think it can only be "fresh" in a sea port....I have news for you. I live in Tokyo and can tell you that the most expensive sushi in the world is FROZEN. Yes, frozen. It really doesn't matter where you are so long as the refrigeration doesn't quit along the way.

if you keep it frozen and eat it the same day you thaw it, it might be pretty good.

I absoloutley love sushi but am not sure I could do this. JUst sounds to "iffy". I agree some of the other good sushi is all about being super fresh, this seems to ruin that concept.

koldkut hit it head on, that power bait is such a mess but with the ease of squeezing a tube it'd be no problem to apply to any lures. And one more good use would be catfish bait, it's already cut bait with a nasty stink and comes in a tube that all you need to do is press the bottom and it dispenses without leaving the stink on your hands.
