Ice-cream of the crop: Haagen-Dazs celebrates its three decades in Japan by producing this pair of pink delights – Sakura (left) and Rose.
The quintessentially Japanese special is yet another innovative touch by the country’s sweets world.
TO mark its 30th anniversary in Japan, premium ice cream maker Haagen-Dazs has released a pair of commemorative flavours to celebrate Japanese culture: rose and cherry blossom.
The floral ice creams come in various shades of pink. Ribbons of cherry sauce streak through the cherry blossom ice cream, while the damask rose flavour is streaked with ribbons of “rich and sour” plum sauce.
The commemorative tubs launched earlier this month across Japan.
When it comes to innovative and unexpected flavour pairings in the Japanese sweets world, chocolate brand Kit-Kat may have the market cornered. Its flavours include everything from Hojicha Roasted Tea, Matcha Green Tea and Blueberry Cheesecake to Edamame Soybean and, of course, Wasabi. – AFP Relaxnews
