You know you’ve made it when you have a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor named after you, and now Japan is getting an exclusive variety all its own that is made from Japan-sourced specialty ingredients.
According to Rocket News 24, Ben & Jerry’s unveiled its new Lemont. Fuji flavor earlier this week at all Ben & Jerry’s locations in Japan. The name is a combination of “lemon” and “Mt. Fuji” and the flavor is based in a citrus-flavored ice cream made with the famous lemons from the Setouchi islands in Hiroshima prefecture.
The lemon ice cream is filled with big chunks of Fuji apples, which are also grown in Japan, and crunchy cinnamon cookies.
Unfortunately for those of us in the rest of the world, the new flavor is currently only available in Japan. It is available at Japanese Ben & Jerry’s stores starting at 380 yen, or $3.10, for a small cup or cone.
