One of the best parts of our recent trip to our city’s Rose Garden was the special バラ or rose-flavored ice cream! Our friends’ reactions were mixed–some people thought it was too perfumey, others thought the rose flavor wasn’t strong enough. I thought it was just right!
As I’m sure you know, Japan loves to do special and regional flavors, and the Soft Cream options are endless. I’ve also had Green Tea, Miso, Pineapple, Brown Sugar, and my favorite–Wasabi-flavored ice cream!
What’s the most unusual soft cream flavor you’ve had?
COUNTDOWN TO AX: 3 days! We’re getting on the plane TOMORROW! (Maybe we should start packing…?) Not too sure what our internet access will be like over the next few days, but we’ll try to update, and will also try to post on Twitter/Facebook. Also, there should be a cool surprise on Youtube soon! Finally, there’s still time to enter our giveaway, and we’ve got tons of stuff to give away at the panel as well! So exciting!
Kinako-flavored soft cream!
Omg that sounds soooooooooooo good! I love Kinako! But wait… is that your unusual flavor one? Why would that be unusual for ice cream? They make kinako cookies and other snacks too~
Well, I mean, they make rose and sakura flavored stuff too. So it’s unusual ’cause it’s not vanilla, chocolate, macha, or somethin’ like that. ;D
Yeah, it’s not unusual as a Japanese flavor, but it’s still a bit interesting as a soft cream flavor. Like Kinako Kit Kats! We had a Kinako & Kuromitsu soft cream last week too, SO TASTY!
I love Japanese soft cream. Had rose in Akita – was good!
I want to go to Akita! What did you go for?
I had lemon flavored ice cream once. I would love to try rose flavored ice cream.
