Häagen-Dazs first created their popular mochi ice cream series in 2015. This year they will release again the classic flavors of roasted soybean and brown sugar, as well as a unique zunda (edamame paste) version. Enjoy these unique Japanese flavors this fall!

While Häagen-Dazs is an American ice cream brand, they offer a wide variety of unique Japanese flavors.

From classics like Japanese green tea all the way to cherry blossom and sweet potato, new and exciting flavors are released every month by Häagen-Dazs Japan.

September 2019 will see one of the most beloved creations from Häagen-Dazs return. It is mochi (glutinous rice cakes) covered ice cream recreating Japanese mochi flavors.

This line of Häagen-Dazs mochi ice cream first appeared in 2015 and has since recreated black sesame mochi and sakura mochi alongside others.

The Kinako (roasted soybean powder) and Kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) Häagen-Dazs is a favorite among Häagen-Dazs fans and will make an appearance for the third time in the mochi line-up.

It first appeared in 2015 and then again in 2017. The ice cream itself is flavored with roasted soybean powder, covered with a layer of mochi and brown sugar syrup, and topped with roasted soybean powder.

Zunda Mochi is a new flavor to Häagen-Dazs. Zunda is a sweet paste made of edamame (green soybeans). Zunda mochi is mainly known in northern Japan and not to common in other parts of the country.

Häagen-Dazs Zunda Mochi's ice cream is blended with edamame which gives it a creamy sweet yet also uniquely savory flavor. The zunda ice cream is covered in mochi and zunda bean paste. It is perfect for people who love unique flavors or something not too sweet!

Both flavors will start appearing from September 17th, 2019 in convenience stores and supermarkets. Each cup will retail for 295 yen plus tax.
