Häagen-Dazs Japan has figured out a new way to get people to eat their vegetables, by mixing it with ice cream and letting people eat vegetables for dessert.
According to Rocket News 24, Häagen-Dazs Japan is releasing a new “Spoon Vege” series on May 12, offering vegetable flavored ice creams starting with Carrot-Orange and Tomato-Cherry.
The combinations might sound odd, but according to Häagen-Dazs Japan the fruity taste of the cherry should pleasantly accentuate the rich taste of the tomato ice cream. The carrot, on the other hand, should get a “sophisticated and refreshing twist” from the citrus, so the flavors would be pleasant and not just weird, vegetable-flavored novelties .
Vegetable ice cream is certainly not quite as healthful as just eating vegetables, but it looks like the vegetable flavors will contain about 8.5 percent milk fat, which is a little more than half the milk fat in Häagen-Dazs’ regular flavors, so the vegetable flavored ice cream might be slightly more healthful than regular chocolate or vanilla ice cream, comparatively speaking.
