Japanese soy sauce is a condiment that's commonly used around the world, yet most people only know it as a way to enhance savory dishes. Soy sauce is said to contain all of the five basic flavors: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami, which is what makes it ideal for serving with so many different types of foods—including desserts.

YK STORES and soy sauce maker Goto Shoyu collaborated to create a special 'Soy Sauce Chocolat for Shaved Ice,' which is made from cocoa powder and brown sugar. Although the product bottle describes that the soy sauce was specifically designed for shaved ice, it could also be paired with a variety of chilled ice cream desserts.
