A REALLY cold cup of tea

Haagen Dazs now has Green Tea ice cream.
It sounded so strange to me that I simply had to buy some.
I'll be trying it for the first time in just a few moments, and will blog about my impressions immediately afterward.
Here we go.
Ready?

Hmmm.... it's the color of squashed bug guts....

And it tastes.... hmm.... Actually it tastes very mild. Almost no flavor at all. Smooth, milky, creamy, and light green. It really doesn't taste like tea at all. Barely.

It needs something....
Ah. Here. I just put some maraschino cherries on it, along with some grenadine syrup. YUM. It added some much-needed flavor, plus it created a strange alien-esque mix of green and bright red.

Cool.

It would also probably be good with some freshly-grated lemon zest on it.

This is always so exciting when you do it.... but nobody wants to hear about my first taste of generic American sliced cheese (stick with the name-brand or at least one up from bargain basement priced stuff.).

I will just say no thank you.

Now I might be interested if they had taco ice cream.

Marilyn: Kraft is best. Or so I hear.

Travis: What about bacon-club-chalupa ice cream?

Sushi restaurants have served green tea ice cream for years. I am so psyched that Haagen Dazs sells it now. Thanks for the post!

This sounds interesting and much more tasty than the last green ice cream I tried. It was wasabi ginger flavor ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery.

Vettech: My lack of awareness was undoubtedly due to the fact that I have never been to a sushi restaurant.

Sharon: Wasabi? Eeeew. That sounds awful! Did it taste like horseradish?
