This Japanese Popsicle Flavor Could Be Delicious If Unexpected

first_imgStay on target How AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Uses American History to Delive…33 Killed in Suspected Arson Attack on Kyoto Animation Studio in Japan If you’re a fan of Japanese snacks, you’ve no doubt tried some very, well, interesting flavors of normal items, like a corn puff that tastes like salami or octopus-flavored chips. This Gari Gari Kun popsicle isn’t any different, even though it has a pretty weird name for what it actually is: a “rare cheese” flavored popsicle. Now, hold up just one second. Cheese and a popsicle? That’s probably pretty disgusting, right?But wait, in Japan, it turns out that “rare cheese” is unbaked cream cheese, so this is a cream cheese popsicle, akin to cream cheese-flavored ice, or a frozen cheesecake, somewhat. This particular popsicle not only features a cheesecake flavored outside, but also lemon cheese sauce to complement it. It may not seem very appetizing or look as much, but apparently, it’s pretty delicious according to Rocket News 24.This is hardly the weirdest popsicle flavor in Japan, however. This very brand has released flavors like spaghetti, so cream cheese is super benign and sounds pretty appetizing. But when you consider most popsicles are flavored like grape, cherry, orange and things like that, a cream cheese flavor is a little concerning. It’s normal to feel kind of apprehensive about strange snacks, but when it comes to some of them, especially of the Japanese variety, there’s a lot you’re missing out on because you might be too scared to try new things. Would you try this “rare cheese” popsicle?If not, what flavors from Gari Gari Kun would you be willing to try out of what’s out there? You’ve got White Stew, Cream Puff, Corn Potage, Neapolitan Spaghetti, whatever Green is, Soda, Peach, Kiwi, Yuzu, Pineapple, and more. Do any of those flavors sound appetizing in the slightest?last_img read more
