“Unmeltable” ice cream at Kanazawa Ice in Kanazawa, Japan. In April of this year, scientists at the Biotherapy Development Research Center stumbled upon a way to make ice cream that stays solid for much longer. They use polyphenols extracted from strawberries which helps stabilize the cream. We of course could not resist trying this brand-new creation! It tastes like regular ice cream, but maintained its shape for the whole time we were doing a photo shoot. Also, this being Kanazawa, they gave you a gold leaf packet to shake over the top of the ice cream. Kanazawa is famous in Japan for its gold leaf (they make 99% of the gold leaf produced in Japan, allegedly). This treat is worth a try for novelty factor alone if you’re in the area!
