A lot of people are looking forward to coming back again and trying some other flavors! You can try so many different combinations that repeated visits are very worth it.

"Shiro- Super Rich" (しろ 超濃厚)

Likewise to the Kuro (black) sesame ice cream, Shiro (white) sesame ice cream is made of 9000 white sesame seeds. Although the white color may suggest a less rich taste, Shiro sesame ice cream also has a rich and deep flavor to it.

There are three flavors of white sesame ice cream, which are "Super Rich", "Rich", and "Mixed Sesame".
The Kuro ice cream uses black sesame, and this Shiro ice cream is made of white sesame seeds. You may taste less the sesame for the Shiro sesame ice cream, but you can still enjoy the rich, flavorful and pleasing sesame taste.
