Made from whole egg yolks and often compared to Flan or creme caramel, Japanese custard pudding can be considered one of the enduring menu highlights from the popular "retro" coffee houses of the country's Showa period (1926-1989). Even without the sheen of nostalgia, you can find plenty of varieties of the beloved pudding at convenience stores and even see it adapted into Starbucks Frappucinos.

Retro takeout pudding specialty store "Purin ni koi shite" (Fall in love with Pudding) is known delivering that pudding in style, with their renowned custard pudding that's made with carefully selected eggs, high-fat Jersey milk, and delicious Hokkaido cream.

They've now announced added some quantity to that quality with a new menu item that has big appetite pudding fans drooling--a pudding so large it has to be served in a bucket.

The new Bucket de Retro Pudding is appropriately named, as it's a gigantic serving of their classic pudding, only 6.6x the original size and it clocks in at 800g! Here's a look at it placed side by side with a standard order.

Even for the most passionate pudding lover, this may be a bucket a bit too big to dive into solo. Priced at 2,000 yen, it may be perfect to split with a group of friends, however. The pudding bucket can be purchased at the Pudding in Love Esola Ikebukuro Store.
