"We have ice cream from all over Japan – from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south – but beef tongue has been the one that people keep coming back for," he said.
The majority of the ice creams were clearly acquired tastes, including the beer version, which failed to recreate either the taste or texture of beer.
"We like strange-tasting food," said Keiko Hashiya, 27, who had driven for nearly two hours to sample the ice creams. "I think Japanese people always want to try new things and ice cream is always very popular when it is this hot in the summer."
More than 125 flavors were showcased at the expo, including cheese, octopus, and garlic. Link -via Arbroath
