    Japanese Ice Cream

    I'm generally willing to try any number of cuisines from around the world, but not this ice cream

    Some of them may be OK, but most of them <img src=/S/barf.gif border=0 alt=barf width=64 height=23>

    I doubt anyone would try to serve you these things, with the exception of sweet potato ice cream (which you could expect to be purplish in color). More likely you'll get the ubiquitous "green tea" ice cream, or vanilla ice cream with sweetened red beans over the top. (That too could be considered an acquired taste!)

    I suspect most of the flavors, if not all, are acquired tastes.

    Re: Japanese Ice Cream

    Thought I'd drop in a fun fact about the substance the Japanese are experimenting with!

    Did anyone invent ice cream?

    Clearly it was not one person who created this gift to humanity, for surely he or she would have already been awarded the Nobel Prize.

    Short of world peace and cures for terrible diseases, what better mark of progress and civilization could there be than the advent of ice cream in general and, if I may say so, chocolate ice cream in particular?

    Ice cream debuted in China 4000 years ago among the nobility in the form of a milk and rice concoction packed in snow. Fruit ices and a form of sherbet followed.

    In the Middle Ages travelers brought these treats back to Italy, where it was still a dessert reserved for the upper crust.

    Improved cheaper refrigeration techniques in the 16th century brought ice cream to the masses, probably the most important dot on the timeline of history until the discovery of antibiotics 400 years later.
