Strawberry Truffle - A New Limited-Edition Crispy Sandwich
The Häagen-Dazs Crispy Sandwich, the delectable dessert combining crispy wafers with rich ice cream and chocolate coating, attracts fans with its deliciously addictive flavors.
The Strawberry Truffle is a limited-edition flavor that goes on sale January 28, 2020. We introduce to you the features of this limited-edition flavor along with a taste test by MATCHA staff.
A Dream Combination of Strawberries and Truffles
Chocolate truffles are an extremely popular dessert in Japan. The Strawberry Truffle Crispy Sandwich is an ice cream dessert that combines the flavor of truffles and strawberries.
Flavorful strawberry ice cream, rich ganache, and cocoa wafers combine to create a luxurious dessert. The truffle flavor is rich and melts in your mouth, complemented by the luscious sweetness and moderate acidity from the strawberries.
Jackie— an editor for MATCHA's Taiwanese website, who is known for his major sweet tooth— and Yuki—our project manager who is crazy about ice cream—were asked to taste test this new item.
It Looks and Tastes So Good! A Treat for Yourself
Yuki commented, “Oh, it smells like strawberries as soon as you open the package!”
Jackie said, “It looks luxurious. The pink chocolate coating and the cocoa-colored wafers are delightful!”
They then took a bite.
Jackie commented, “The moment you take a bite, the strawberry and chocolate flavors fuse together in your mouth. It’s like eating an actual strawberry truffle.”
Yuki added, not being able to get enough of it, “It’s the perfect balance between sweet and sour. It’s not overly sweet, so you could eat it all in one sitting.”
Jackie commented further, “This is a dessert I’d want after a meal!”
Yuki said, “This would be something I treat myself to after finishing a large project. It’s something I’d want to take my time enjoying.”
Häagen-Dazs products can be purchased at supermarkets and convenience stores in Japan. Jackie and Yuki both strongly recommend the Strawberry Truffle Crispy Sandwich, so give it a try when you visit Japan!
