Häagen-Dazs Release New Soybean Flour Brown Sugar Syrup and Zunda Mochi Ice Creams
14.September.2019 | FOOD
Häagen-Dazs Japan has announced that it will release two new flavours from its popular hanamochi ice cream series on September 17: “Soybean Flour Brown Sugar Syrup” and “Zunda.”
Soybean Flour Brown Sugar Syrup Hanamochi
The soybean flour brown sugar syrup hanamochi was released back in 2015 and returned again in 2017. This year, Häagen-Dazs is bringing is back even more delicious than before. They have blended together a variety of soybean flours to elevate the ingredient’s original flavour.
The top of the mochi is sprinkled with a blend of lightly roasted black and yellow soybeans. By roasting them, the original taste and fragrance of the soybean comes through tenfold. Dark roasted soybean has also been combined with milk for a velvety texture, and the entire thing is drizzled in a rich original brown sugar syrup sauce which further enrichens the soybean flavour.
Zunda is sweet soybean paste made from mashed edamame beans and a flavour that has been gaining popularity in Japan in recent years. Häagen-Dazs is incorporating the flavour for the first time in their hanamochi series.
The lumpy texture of the crushed edamame goes deliciously well with the chewy mochi, taking the original authentic taste and texture of edamame to a whole new level. Mixing it with soybeans and rich milk turns it into a smooth ice cream in your mouth. The sauce also contains a sprinkle of salt to bring out the flavour of the zunda.
The packaging has also been updated, inspired by their flavours and topped with a golden lid, giving it a modern-Japanese appeal. Don’t miss out on these two new flavours.

Kusatsu Onsen’s Emerald Green Pudding is a Must-Try After a Dip in the Hot Springs
Kusatsu Onsen is a hot spring resort in Gunma Prefecture that is one of Japan’s three principle hot spring locations. The site opened its new Japanese custard dessert (known as ‘purin’) shop, Kusatsu Onsen Pudding, on August 24, which serves the most incredibly smooth purin you have ever tried, each inspired by the hot springs.
Once you’ve stepped out of the nice warm hot springs of Kusatsu Onsen you can refresh yourself with a delicious purin packed full of love from the shop which has created a flavour you can only try by travelling to Gunma and going there. Each and every dessert is made fresh in the shop to further elevate its exclusivity as a local speciality.
Kusatsu Onsen Pudding also makes sure to use local and regional ingredients where it can to help support manufacturers and producers. Their purin is also made with a special type of milk sourced from in Gunma known as Haruna milk. The milk is made as delicious as can be by ensuring cows are raised on a healthy natural diet of grass on green pastures in Gunma bathed in plenty of sunlight.
The Yuhata purin is inspired by the hot spring areas where mineral deposits are harvested, its jelly taking on a gorgeous emerald green colour. It’s lemon and lime flavoured, the perfect flavour to enjoy when stepping out of the hot water, and one which goes surprisingly well with purin.
The staple purin of the store, this purin is based on yumomi, a method used for cooling the hot water with paddles from which cold water gushes forth. This velvety delight is made with lots of fresh cream and high-quality vanilla beans from Madagascar for added punch.
A pun on the word fromage, with furo in Japanese meaning “bath,” the Furomage purin uses a rich cream cheese base which has a seriously smooth texture. It’s topped off with strawberry jelly for the perfect combination, packing a perfect balance between sweet and sour.
Yuhata Soft (Milk/Yuhata/Mixed)
Choose from the Yuhata soft serve ice cream which is ramune flavoured and inspired by the flowing water of the hot springs or the Haruna milk-mixed vanilla flavoured Milk soft serve. If you can’t pick, then choose mixed for a bit of both. A satisfyingly refreshing pick for when you’re done in the hot springs.
The shop has plans to sell purin made using bamboo steamers in the near future, so you’re pudding can be steamed like yourself after a dip in the water! The wooden spoons used to eat the desserts are also made in the image of the paddles used in yumomi too.

As part of the ongoing celebrations for Hello Kitty’s 45th anniversary, Sanrio just launched the all-new Hello Kitty FIGURINE KT-01BT in Japan on September 2.
This Hello Kitty Smart Mate features the same design of the popular original Hello Kitty FIGURINE KT-01 released back in 2016. Featuring as both a flip dumb phone and figurine, the device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Everything from its design and shape to the packaging it comes in is inspired by 1970’s Hello Kitty―the year she first showed her cute face to the world―clad in an pink adorable dress and ribbon.
The device connects to both smartphones and Bluetooth, meaning it can serve as an extension to your smartphone, allowing you to take calls from it when your smartphone is in the bottom of your bag. It can also copy over your contacts and phone history from your smartphone, making it a very handy addition indeed. It features all the basic functions too including a calculator, clock and more.
Check out how cute that design is!
