Japanese food company creates pig replica dishes to remind customers of the origin of pork.

Nagao Sample, a Tokyo-based food replica company posted in Twitter on July 17 the bizarre photos of little coated fried pigs with salad dressing and pigs floating in miso soup.

It later turned out that the replica pigs were not edible and are only used as decorations to attract more customers. The whole thing was the idea of a Japanese food artist who wanted to 'remind the diners of the origin of pork'.

However, the food company got a dose of their own medicine as they received mixed reactions from the online community.

Instead of boosting their appetite, most of the netizens complained that the realistic pigs are too 'disturbing' and 'disgusting'. Some also called the company for using whole pigs as a comparison to the meat oftenly served, which is pork.

On the other hand, some people took the lighter side of the issue and praised the company for their creativity. One Facebook user even commented:

"I like it. It's creative. It's funny to see and we know thats it's not really a small pig. It just appears to look like a real one with tiny pieces of it. I wonder now how it taste."
