Holiday potato salad recipe resembles tentacle monster

Holiday potato salad recipe resembles tentacle monster

TOKYO —

This Christmas, Japanese retail conglomerate Aeon is conjuring an ancient evil from a centuries-long slumber — and bringing it to the dinner table for your family to enjoy.

At the beginning of the month, Aeron launched their “Many Christmas” campaign, where each week they share a new unique holiday recipe for shoppers to try out.

This week’s recipe, pictured, is a potato salad adorned with boiled shrimp and slices of hard-boiled egg topped with black olives. It sounds great on paper, and probably tastes fantastic as well. The problem is, they arranged it to look like something out of a Lovecraftian horror.

Aeon claims the potato salad was arranged to look like a “holiday decoration cake”, but we can’t recall the last time we were served a Christmas desert covered in serpentine eyes and a mass of tentacles.

The asparagus heads are a nice touch, though.
