Binging with Babish: Brock's Onigiri from Pokémon

  • Published: 02 April 2019
  • Okay, it's April 2nd, fun's over. This week, for reals this time, we're making onigiri: the breakfasty-lunchy-snack, ubiquitous in Japan, and virtually unheard of here in the US. As such, some committee of suits saw fit to Americanize their portrayal on Pokémon, and a generation of these United States grew up thinking they were donuts...and the bastards made ten hundred billion dollars. Was it worth it, 4Kids Entertainment? Oh, it was? No yeah you're right.

      So... I've never ever added vinegar for onigiri. It's usually just plain. Vinegar is added specifically for sushi.

                                                I was a pretty dumb kid. I 100% believed that what Brock said was donuts (translation) was a jelly filled donut. They say kids aren't that stupid, no I really was that stupid.

                                                                                Not gonna lie, half-way into this video I scoffed and laughed snobbishly at the ugly shaped onigiri. Even the final one I felt was a bit too... big and deformed. That's like double the volume of a typical onigiri too.
