Thanks to developments from the Biotherapy Development Research center, there are now some sweet ice cream treats that will stay cool even in the midst of a humid summer.

After accidentally discovering a secret ingredient, the Japanese research center is making summer treats that don't melt. Polyphenol liquid is naturally extracted from strawberries, making it an edible and delicious ice cream additive, plus, it contains properties that makes it difficult for water and oil to separate, meaning anything containing it will be able to retain its shape for longer.

'Kanazawa Ice' also referred to as "not melting popsicles" first appeared in Northwest areas of Japan but have since become available in larger cities, like Osaka and Tokyo. The summer-resistant treats are said to retain their shape, even "if exposed to the hot air from a dryer."
