Compare 3 Japanese Ice Creams Made From 3 Special Milks!

This summer at Handels Vagen, a premium ice cream store in Ikebukuro and Osaka, you can compare ice creams made from milk from different parts of Japan! This is some of the highest quality ice cream that you can get.

Feel free to follow favy!

Taste how different milk changes the flavor

Milk ice cream from cows in Tottori, Nagano, and Hokkaido.
At Handel's Vagen, you can order 3 scoops of ice cream, each made from a different milk. The premium milks used in the ice cream come from Tottori, Nagano, and Hokkaido, some of Japan's most famous milk-producing regions.

Apparently, the milk used to make the ice cream can have a huge effect on the the flavor. The milk used for these ice creams is super-premium, each with its own unique characteristics.
The Hokkaido milk comes from special dairy cows in Hamanaka, in eastern Hokkaido. Since it is quite far to the north and located next to the ocean, the climate is cool and perfectly suited to the happy cows, which produce milk with a fat percentage of above 4%!

The Nagano milk comes from Jersey cows in Nobeyama, high in the mountains of Nagano prefecture. Only 1% of Japanese cows are Jersey cows, and the nutrient-rich milk that these cows produce is called 'golden milk.'

The Tottori milk comes from a well-known dairy co-op called Daisen, on the northern coast of Japan in Tottori prefecture. The area is known for its rich soil and pastures for grazing, which in turn produces rich, delicious milk.

Make it a sundae -- for free!

Free toppings!
When you get the 3 scoop comparison dish, you can help yourself to a variety of free toppings! Turn your ice creams scoops into a sundae, or just eat them plain. Either way, you can compare the flavors produced by the different milks and enjoy the decadent richness of the ice cream.


Handel's Vagen has two locations offering this ice cream comparison set. One is in Ikkebukuro's Tobu department store, and the other is in Osaka's Lucua department store. It's not specified how long the special milk ice creams will be on sale, but they should be available at least through the summer of 2019.
