New Blog!

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 doesn't look like ice-cream

Despite the fact that it's getting colder, I've been eating ice-cream. This is basically inspired by RocketNews24, which reported on the Haagen Daz ice cream that looks a lot like mapo doufu. Being a naturally curious person (and because the ice-cream sounded good), I decided to try it out and...

It really does look like mapo doufu ._.

This, by the way, is the Banana caramel cookie flavour:

While I like bananas, I thought it tasted rather artificial here, like how bananas tend to do in sweets. The caramel and chocolate parts were good, though!

This wasn't the only flavour. They also had:

Cheese berry cookie, which I much preferred. The taste of the cheese is really mild (I couldn't taste it), so it's basically a berry and cookie flavoured ice-cream. Really, really good - I actually bought a second helping of this. And it looks like:


(According to a friend).

The last ice-cream that I ate recently was this Lawson-only ice-cream (or so the sign at Lawson said). It's this sweet potato flavoured ice-cream.

And it's shaped to look like a sweet potato! (The outside is a wafer)

And this was actually much better than I imagined. The ice-cream itself tastes uncannily like yakiimo, and there's a layer of yakiimo paste on the top, to enchance the flavour.

Definitely get this if you see it in stores.

And just to be clear, I didn't eat all these in one day. I ate them over the course of a week. Also, I've been pretty much school and NaNoWriMo and driving classes so I don't have much to report. But I am planning to go somewhere interesting this week so if I do go, I'll blog about it!
