Ice cream that doesn’t melt

Ok, that’s kind of a lie. But it is much more resistant to heat than regular ice cream.

“Staring at her popsicle for five minutes under the sun, a 30-year-old woman who was visiting from Chiba Prefecture, said, “No change in the appearance.  . . .When heat from a dryer was applied in an air-conditioned room, a vanilla popsicle that was purchased from a regular shop began melting around the edges almost instantly. But the Kanazawa Ice retained its original shape even after five minutes. It also tasted cool.”

The magic ingredient is polyphenol extracted from strawberries. Food scientists are my third favorite kind of scientists!

I feel like Japan is the home of the most amazing food I’m never going to get to eat.

  1. No. They are missing the point- the rivulets of melted ice cream running down your hand as you desperately lick at your cone on a hot day. How uncomfortably sticky your hand is after, plus that splotch where a fat drop landed on your clothing. Some things in life are meant to be gloriously messy.
