Called "F-cup cookies," they feature a plant extract from Thailand called Pueraria Mirifica that contains a molecule similar to the hormone estrogen, which plays a role in breast size and development.

Women are supposed to eat two cookies a day to "achieve maximum results," which is okay because they are only 70 calories and swell as they absorb water, "giving you long-lasting satisfaction."

Note: They may cause "loose bowels" if eaten in excess. Also, don't eat them if you are:

A. Pregnant

B. Breastfeeding

C. Menstruating

D. Have some sort of medical condition related to the ovaries, uterus or breasts

Also, don't eat them because they don't work. Nutrition experts said there's no scientific evidence that this herbal extract has a similar effect to estrogen when eaten.

If cookies aren't your thing, there's a bust-enhancing gum called "Bust-Up" that's, yes, also sold in Japan:
