Pizza Hut in Japan are trying to mess with your taste buds. They already launched the “Too Much Coriander Pizza.” Now they’re taking it a step farther by coming out with the “Wiener Coffee Pizza!”
Now why is Pizza Hut doing this? It all has to do with word play and word confusion. The Japanese word for “Viennese” is “Wiener.” Wiener sausage is one of the most popular foods in Japan. But the Japanese just call them Wieners for short. But then there’s Viennese Coffee, so Japanese see it as Weiner Coffer or “Sausage Coffee.” So Pizza Hut Japan saw the opportunity to combine both!
On their website, it says in Japanese “Wiener coffee. A shocking combination that everyone has imagined from the name. Everyone’s misunderstanding turned into a pizza!”
The pizza comes with wieners rolled into the crust. The pizza is topped with cheese, cream cheese, and coffee drizzle all over. It also comes with a side of whipped cream in a carton to add on before you eat.
When tasted, people didn’t know what to think. But they didn’t say it was bad. They said it was a combination of sweet, salty, bitter, all combined into one. Like eating dinner and dessert together.
If they served it here in the United States, I’m sure there would be a lot of interest for people to try it. But that seems highly unlikely. For now, we’ll just have to live vicariously through those who have tried it in Japan!
