My New “Bacon And Egg” iPhone Cover! Fake Food Japan Delivers A Culinary Work Of Art!

Here’s My New, Custom-Designed iPhone Cover!

Yes, I have finally upgraded my new iPhone 11 with a custom designed cover – a return to my bacon-and-egg days!

As some of you know, I used to have a great iPhone cover that looked just like this…but the bad new is this: it was for a 5G phone – about twenty generations and sizes ago!

Luckily. the terrific company “Fake Food Japan” offers a unique opportunity to customize your phones, keychains, or virtually anything you can imagine, and it’s done with the utmost professionalism and creativity!

Look at the ridges in the bacon, and the nice rise of the packed egg! I reached out to the company and they designed one for me, shipped it, and now it’s mine – I just can NEVER upgrade my phone again!

When I was in Tokyo, I saw the plastic food stores, where you can buy all sorts of cool stuff like this plate of sushi!

I wanted to outfit my new iPhone 11 with a uniquely creative protective cover.  

The Artisans at Fake Food Japan worked with me on my “bacon and egg” idea, which they designed and then delivered in a beautiful case that surpassed all of my expectations.

It’s a conversation starter that wows everyone who sees it, and not only is the design and quality of the work superb, the team at Fake Food Japan were a pleasure to work with.  Considering I ordered from Los Angeles, the communication was fast and efficient, and the price was very reasonable as well.  I plan to order a variety of available items right off of their site to share as gifts, because they are truly unique works of food art!

I asked Justin if I could share his contact information, and he’s happy to hear from anyone!

I give this company the highest possible recommendation for quality of service and value. 

As I said, I got to tour the incredible fake food palaces of Tokyo’s Kappabashi Street:

This district is fascinating, and one of the best things I ever bought was this:

Yes, I own a “plastic triple cheeseburger!”

If you want to know why this all exists, I give away all of the secrets in my story here:

By the way, I’m not the only one who loves this stuff:

That’s right, kids wear this plastic food on their heads!
