Hey there! I've decided to continue blogging at a different blog. The MEXT archives and some of my travel posts will remain here, but I'll be moving some stuff over. Hope to see you there!

Ice Cream that Tastes Like Chips?!

So, I haven't really been living an interesting life lately. It's been school and home and school and home and so on. I'm really looking forward to next week though.

Anyway, I ate the weirdest ice-cream flavour EVER (at least, to date) and wanted to share it with you. Like the title says, the flavour was: chips. Or rather, a snack that tasted like salted potato chips. But I guess it's actually more like those goldfish crackers?

There it is, looking all innocent
I was actually pretty sceptical of how salty it could taste, because this is ice-cream after all. I really shouldn't be doubting the Japanese ice-cream makers. This tasted exactly like chips. It was uncanny. It was cold and smooth, but my tastebuds were telling me that this was salty and potato-chips like.

It was interesting, for sure, but I don't think I'll eat this a second time. I like my ice-cream sweet (or sour), not salty. Well, salty-sweet is fine, but this was not sweet enough.

Oh, and for all of you in Fukuoka: the Calbee+ shop at Hakata is now selling Mentaiko chips!!

If you want some awesome mentaiko chips, you better head down there soon. The signboard said that this was a seasonal item.
