According to Jimmy’s Bakery, which invented this twisted masterpiece, it was designed to get kids excited about eating bread during the hot summer months when their appetites decrease. The bread uses natural dyes – green tea for the rind, strawberries for the flesh, and charcoal for the seeds. Some alternative recipes online also suggest trying raisins as seeds.

It seems like it would be fun and delicious to eat, though it might be disappointing to bite into on a hot summer day. It’s very popular locally, though!
