Japan's new Häagen-Dazs ice creams take inspiration from chewy mochi treats and feature uniquely textured layers on top. While one of the brand's mochi-enhanced frozen desserts has been introduced as part of limited-time offerings, the brand-new chestnut sweet bean mochi offers a unique way for people in Japan to enjoy seasonal flavors.
The chestnut sweet bean mochi dessert combines sweet white anko with white anko ice cream and chestnut sauce, all of which can be found under a layer of sugar-dusted chestnut anko mochi. This new addition to the Hanamochi line shares a convenient way for those with a sweet tooth to enjoy the taste of ice cream and a popular glutinous treat simultaneously.
