The red part contains watermelon juice and the seeds are made from chocolate. The green is of course the rind. The chocolate matches well with the red-colored ice. You'll be able to enjoy three different flavors in one bar.

Azuki (sweet red beans) are a key ingredient in many Japanese wagashi. The Azuki Bar uses the same ingredients as zenzai. Additive-free and with no artificial coloring, the treat is also nice on the body. The bar is 108 yen (with tax).

It might not be super colorful, but it has a flavor that you won't get tired of no matter how many times you eat it. You'll find lots of azuki pieces inside the bar which adds a unique texture. Refreshing and not too sweet, this one is great for those who aren't fans of super-sweet desserts.

The bar is harder than other ice bars, so you should be careful if you try to take a bite right away.
