 Japan Launches Vegetable Flavored Ice Cream
Haagen-Dazs Japan is planning to launch Spoon Vege a line of vegetable flavored ice cream in the Asian country next month.

The two flavors to start the trend are "Tomato Cherry" and "Orange Carrot," Fox News reported.

A translated press release states that "Tomato Cherry combines the natural sweetness of tomato with the fruity flavor of cherry, which should accentuate the rich taste of the tomato." While Orange Carrot "takes the gentle flavor of carrot and adds to it the fresh citrus taste and scent of orange, giving the carrot a sophisticated and refreshing twist."

According to Japan's Rocketnews24, the new line will contain only 8.5 percent milk fat - which is just over half the milk fat content of most traditionally flavored Haagen-Dazs ice creams, so it is actually a bit healthier.
