Japan's shrimp ice cream sounds like an intriguing summer treat


In which seafood and deserts unite

To this day, seafood is one of the meat groups that hasn't disappointed me. As the people of Niigata Prefecture's Uonuma invent the Nanban Shrimp soft serve to attract more tourists, I'm willing to see if I can maintain this statement.

Aside from having two shrimps, the vanilla soft serve is topped with miso powder and a Senbei rice cracker. From the looks of it, I could see it having a decent balance between its sweet and salty flavors.

In the end, the desert sounds tamer than Japan's other odd ice cream flavors, such as viper and cow tongue. Since it costs  ¥350 (around U.S. $3.18), I'm willing to pay that much to take the dive.
