With names like Antoinette and Opera, you can expect that these two new decadent ice cream flavors from Häagen-Dazs Japan are really rich treats.

Taking inspiration from French desserts, as well as the iconic Marie Antoinette herself, the Antoinette ice cream is made with layers of red wine sauce, sponge cake, Boudreaux red wine ice cream, topped with sprinkles of silver leaf.

On the other hand, Opera takes inspiration from the French dessert of the same name, and it features layers of butter and coffee ice cream, separated by almond cookies. This ice cream treat is topped off with a layer of chocolate sauce and bits of gold leaf. The seasonal desserts won't go on sale in Japan until December, but these are definitely two to keep your eyes peeled for.
