We tried "Parm Caramel Pumpkin," a limited-time-only flavor from Morinaga Milk Industry's "PARM" brand of ice cream. The combination of the sticky caramel sauce and the fragrant pumpkin is an autumnal dish. The retail price is 150 yen (tax not included).
Palm Caramel Pumpkin
This flavor is said to reproduce the taste of pumpkin pudding. Pumpkin paste is used in the ice cream so that its presence can be fully enjoyed. The ice cream is filled with a bittersweet caramel sauce, and the outside is coated with a melt-in-your-mouth caramel chocolate coating. The taste of the product has been made to be more refreshing, so that you will not get tired of eating a whole bottle. The product contains 80 ml and has 199 kcal.
When cut with a knife, the ribbon-like strip of caramel sauce running through the canary-colored ice cream is beautiful, and when you bite into it, you can taste the thick sweetness, a hint of bitterness, and the rich flavor of burnt sugar.
After the sauce makes a strong statement, the fluffy and dusty aroma of pumpkin lingers in the aftertaste, and the two flavors blend together in the mouth to create a pleasant aftertaste. The difference in texture between the crispy coating, the soft, melt-in-your-mouth ice cream, and the sticky sauce also complemented each other, making this an ice cream bar that could be enjoyed all the way through without ever getting tired of it.
