Celebrate Super Mario Day with your taste buds

The technical boom has led to many changes in pop culture over the years, one of the notable changes is the rise of video games. Today’s video game industry is dominated by modern, high profile games such as Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed, but there is one which has been around since 1983 and captured the minds and hearts of many generations. That game is Super Mario.

Here at Kudos Delivered we are proud fans of Super Mario, and many of us believe Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of the best games ever made. Whilst researching the Italian plumber we found out that Super Mario Day is a real thing which is celebrated today, so we decided to create a blog combining our two greatest loves – Mario and food.

Here are some incredible food creations inspired by the game itself…

1. Mushroom radishes

This is probably the healthiest option on the list. With the help of some simple  food art and a picture or memory, you can make your very own Super Mario salad. You can use edible paint (which can be found in most local supermarkets) to decorate your mushroom radish and trust us, it tastes a lot better than it sounds!

2. Super Cookieo

Celebrate everyone’s favourite plumber with a tasty treat. This amazing cookie is so much easier to make now there are 8-bit cookie cutters around, which effectively halves the work-load. You’ll enjoy it even more if you use your own favourite cookie recipe.

3. 1-up burger

Bring your burger to life (quite literally) with this ingenious idea. The 1-up burger is meant to resemble the 1-up mushroom from the Mario franchise, but this will taste a million times better. Take a normal homemade burger, add a little bit of edible art, and you’re good to go.

So there we have it, three ideas which will help you celebrate one of the biggest icons in the gaming world. While you continue celebrating, I’ll be booting up Super Mario 64 in an effort to collect all 120 stars.
