Written by MATCHA-PR
What better treat on a hot summer day than some smooth, delicious gelato? Häagen-Dazs Japan releases the mini cup Creamy Gelato Almond & Milk on June 23, 2020. This frozen treat will steal your heart with its rich almond flavor. We introduce the features of this dessert and a unique way to savor it.
Creamy Gelato: A New Mini Cup Line from Häagen-Dazs
Häagen-Dazs Japan releases its latest mini cup series Creamy Gelato on June 23, just in time for the summer season.
The special feature of this series is that the ice cream should be stirred before tasting. You'll then enjoy the soft, smooth texture of the finest gelato.
There are two varieties that capture the essence of summer: the refreshing pairing of Almond & Milk and the seasonal flavor Golden Pineapple & Mascarpone.
This article introduces the Almond & Milk flavor with a review from a MATCHA staff member who sampled it.
Creamy Gelato Almond & Milk: So Fragrant!
When you open the Creamy Gelato Almond & Milk, you'll notice that it consists of two types of gelato: one made from unskinned almond paste and another made of rich milk.
Try it first as it is, straight from the cup, and allow the rich flavor of ice cream crafted with the finest ingredients to delight your tastebuds. Once the gelato melts in your mouth, the refreshing almond flavor lingers.
Next, try eating it as suggested by the creators of the Creamy Gelato series. Let the ice cream become a little softer, then start mixing it slowly with a spoon while gently pressing the walls of the mini cup.
As the ice cream turns into a soft gelato, it becomes fluffier and easy to mold. You'll surely want to take a picture of it, too.
A Frozen Dessert Ideal for Enjoying Leisurely at Home
We asked Takashi, project manager at MATCHA, to taste the new Häagen-Dazs ice cream and tell us his thoughts.
"It has a truly rich almond taste! First, the fragrant almond flavor fills your mouth, but then, the milk becomes stronger. It has a very creamy and smooth texture."
When asked about when he would like to enjoy this dessert, Takashi replied, "After dinner while unwinding at home." He added that the almond fragrance is very comforting, making him feel relaxed and happy.
Creamy Gelato Almond & Milk, along with the seasonal flavor Golden Pineapple & Mascarpone, is available starting June 23 at supermarkets and convenience stores throughout Japan. Enjoy summer even more with this impressive almond-flavored gelato!
