We here at Nerdist enjoy our burritos, mostly because they’re tasty, warm, cuddly… wait, cuddly?! Yes, now snuggling with your very own larger-than-life burrito can be a reality with this Super Burrito Body Pillow.
A burrito pillow makes perfect sense since tortillas are really just warm, comforting blankets for all that delicious filling. This three-foot-long huggable ode to the burrito consists of a fleece and felt filling of beans, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, rice and meat, complete with a silver lame faux foil wrap.
The pillow was first custom made by artist Lauren Venell for an issue of The Bold Italic magazine and is currently available in their online shop. According to Venell, this pillow “makes an excellent body pillow or imaginary friend.” Yes! Yes to a burrito as an imaginary friend! Take this pillow for long walks on the beach, use it to cruise the carpool lane, make it weird and go eat burritos together!
In case having a burrito as a companion by your side isn’t enough for you, there’s always the option of becoming a burrito with Venell’s other creation, the burrito costume. Eat a burrito, while wearing a burrito, AND hugging a burrito. Now that’s almost too meta, even for us.
We’re not the only ones who enjoy our burrito. Check out our recent episode of Nerdist: Presents, where some of our favorite folks shared what’s inside their ideal burrito!
