It started on Twitter.
“They had it!”
“I almost fainted when I saw it!”
It quickly went to Facebook. People posted pictures. People shared locations where it could be found, and where it was selling out. What was this buzz about?
The Crunky Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Bar. Awwww yeaaaaaah.
If it weren’t for practically everyone I know online raving about it, I might have passed by the bland, unassuming packaging and gone for the Black Thunder, or the old stand by, Haagen Dazs.
I don’t particularly care for Crunky chocolates, either–they tend to be a bit waxy, I find. The name makes me giggle, but that’s about all they’re good for usually. I wonder if they know what “crunk” actually means, but I was pretty disappointed I didn’t get crazy or drunk the first time I tried it!
But I picked one of these bars up, and damn, I’m glad I did! Creamy mint ice cream with a thick layer of dark chocolate, studded with crisped rice, this mint bar is totally worth swooning over. Refreshing and delightful. And it was only ¥126 at our corner combini, which is way more affordable than those fancy Haagen Dazs.
So if you’re in Japan, pick one up! If not, well, come visit. It’s worth it.
Have you gotten Crunk’d? What did you think?
