EarthBound – Trout Yogurt

Smoked Trout Yogurt from the Earthbound game series.

With the hotly anticipated release of his Gourmet Yogurt Machine, Apple Kid Industries is quickly becoming a household name all across Eagleland. Now adults, children, and even young women can enjoy the convenience of fresh, and delicious, yogurt made at the push of a button. Although flavors such as vanilla and strawberry are quite common, certain palates yearn for the refinement of taste that can only be found among the haute cuisine elite. Often called the caviar of yogurts: Trout Yogurt is the fashionable treat taking the culinary world by storm. If you haven’t invested in a yogurt dispenser of your own yet, don’t worry. The recipe to follow will have you enjoying that big city taste in no time!

Interestingly enough, some of the most iconically bizarre foods in EarthBound came from the creative minds of the American localizers, as opposed to Mr. Itoi himself. In Mother 3, this item would have been ‘Strawberry Tofu;’ and although I definitely plan on making that as well, Trout Yogurt is what I grew up on so let’s give it a whirl!
