The development and rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines is a remarkable scientific and logistical achievement, something to celebrate, for sure. Why not celebrate with a vaccine-themed sweet mousse?
The Sulyan family patisserie in Veresegyhaz, north east of Budapest in Hungary, has launched a range of layered mousses with colourful jelly toppings, presented in small glasses, with decorative syringes on top. Each colour of jelly represents a different Covid-19 vaccine available in the country: citrus yellow for Astra Zeneca, a slightly darker yellow for Sinopharm, matcha green for Pfizer, orange for Sputnik V, and vivid blue for Moderna.
When you turn up for your injection, you have no say in which vaccine you will be given. However, at the patisserie, confectioner Katalin Benko reported, customers are free to choose whichever one they want. And the only likely side-effect is that it will put a smile on your face.
