Although roasted sweet potato is something that you'll see popping up around the fall season, this unusually shaped ice cream is one that you'll find in the freezer section.

The ice cream treat by the Imuraya Confectionery Company is designed to look and taste just like a sweet potato, although it's definitely more of a refreshing and time-saving than having to roast a potato in the oven. Just like a real yam, the sweet potato ice cream has a tougher outer skin and a soft inside with different flavors and consistencies. To make the product as authentic as possible, there are even some chocolate patches to simulate bits that might have gotten burned in the cooking process.
