10 years ago my wife and I took a vacation to Japan where we found one of the best tasting ice creams we ever had. It was the Haagen-Dazs green tea ice cream. When we came back to the States, we tried looking for it, but it seems that it wasn't a flavor that Haagen-Dazs sold in the US. We tried other brands' green tea flavors, but nothing really matched what we had in Japan.
Today, after 10 years of searching, we found this at our local grocery store:
Haha -- awesome. I took a trip to Japan for a month for Google, and found the exact same ice cream (I was there during the summer). When I came back to the US, though, I had exactly the same conundrum! Thank goodness they brought it over, though. I still think it's a slight bit sweeter than the Japanese version, but it's the closest we'll get without importing it, I think.ReplyDelete
