Today's first entry was a pleasant surprise for me. Found it in the Family Mart (US=Famima!) store. Its Haagen Dazs Pumpkin! It had a tiny swirl of (I think) Caramel. I really liked it. I like that Haagen Dazs is pushing and trying new flavors (that is another thing I like about Japan and will be explored further in future posts). I think they are doing special flavors in the US as well but this flavor would probably be too radical for them as in the US pumpkin is only considered a holiday food (and usually only Thanksgiving) plus this one is more on the Kabocha style as you can tell from the picture.
Out of 5 stars, I rate this a 4.
