My watch list  



CalorieMate (カロリーメイト) is a brand of energy-supplement foods produced by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., in Japan.

CalorieMate comes in several forms, including Block, Jelly, and Can. CalorieMate Block (カロリーメイト ブロック) resembles a bar-shaped cookie (somewhat like a shortbread), sold in packs of either two or four. CalorieMate Jelly (カロリーメイト ゼリー) is a gelatin sold in a pouch with a spout. CalorieMate Can (カロリーメイト 缶) is a canned drink. The packaging is quite plain, almost generic.

Appearance in popular culture

CalorieMate makes an appearance in the video game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The item is pictured as a chocolate-flavoured CalorieMate Block, and fully restores Naked Snake's stamina when consumed. His replies after eating are "Mmm, delicious!!", "That's tasty!", "I want some more!" and "That's damn good!"

CalorieMate has also teamed up with Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer from the hit TV Series 24 on Fox Network, to help promote their products though numerous commercials.

In the Japanese version of the first game of the Phantasy Star series, there is a common item called PelorieMate (ペロリメイト), an obvious reference to CalorieMate. In the English version, this item has been renamed to Cola

In a gag comic parodying Full Metal Panic called Ikinari Full Metal Panic, the main male character Sagara Sosuke reveals that he eats an energy supplement food called "CalorieMark", an obvious parody of CalorieMate. He is also seen eating what appears to be a CalorieMate stick in one episode of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, though the actual product is unnamed in the animation. He is described as eating Calorie Mates in more than one of the original novels, and some of the illustrations show this specifically.

In Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG (Episode 8: Fake Food), a "Calorie Friend" package that looks exactly a Calorie Mate package is found scattered on Gouda's desk along with pills and other energy boosters as he watches a debate program.
