I tried the "7 Premium Like Crown Melon" ice cream bar from 7-Eleven. The selling price is 213.84 yen (tax included).
7 Premium Crown Melon
This Crown Melon-flavored ice cream bar is part of the "As if" series that makes you feel as if you are eating frozen fruit. It is characterized by its rich, sticky taste. It contains 13% Shizuoka-grown Crown Melon juice and 12% domestic melon juice.
When removed from the package, the bright yellow-green color is reminiscent of the flesh of a crown melon. When you bite into it, you will find that it has a sticky texture on the tongue, just like biting into a piece of fruit. The melon flavor is surprisingly easy on the palate, and the elegant sweetness and clean aftertaste are a pleasant and melon-like experience.
By the way, if you buy a melon-flavored ice cream bar, you may want to try this easy arrangement to enjoy an iced melon soda, even if you are a lazy person. The method is simple: fill a glass with cider and add an ice bar. The ice bar acts as a substitute for ice, and the cider quickly cools to a crisp.
Stir the cider a little and drink it, and it tastes even more refreshing. Perhaps it is because, unlike vanilla ice cream, it does not have a milky taste. It is a little different from the typical melon soda, but it is a good combination for those who want something more refreshing. It was a pleasant drink to enjoy on a hot day.
