Japan's Love Affair With Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream
If you come to Japan, you might be surprised to find Häagen-Dazs ice cream available at virtually every supermarket or convenience store. The New York-based ice cream maker has a solid reputation in the land of the rising sun. People love it for its rich, refined taste that stands out compared to the lighter Japanese brands, and also because Häagen-Dazs has been very successful at making innovative products for the Japanese market that blend some of the countries traditional ingredients into the addictively rich ice cream. Here are some of Häagen-Dazs' ice cream flavors you may find in Japan! Be aware that many of these are seasonal products, so they might not stay available for a long time. Get them while they last!
Hojicha Latte (From 31/10/2017)
Hojicha is a type of roasted green tea very popular in Japan. This one is made with the first flush leaves of green tea. Its particularity is its pleasant roasted tea sent as well as its rich milky taste. As they say in Japan, the hojicha adds "umami" (a deepness in the taste) as well.
Aroma Coffee Vanilla (From 7/11/2017)
The Japanese love iced coffee drinks so naturally they love coffee ice cream as well. This one blends a bitter and very fragrant coffee sorbet with a rich vanilla ice cream. The bitter taste and smell of the coffee kicks in first, and then is balanced out by the sweet vanilla.
Strawberry White Chocolate (From 2/6/2018)
It has a sour cream buttery smell and a taste that is both quite sweet and sour. The sweetness comes from a blend of two types of white chocolate and the sourness comes from the strawberry sauce, which has a little bit of texture because it has some mashed ripe strawberries in it.
