Coffee Jelly and Vanilla Ice
Cream"Coffee Jelly and Vanilla Ice Cream" is a combination of diced coffee jelly, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. You can choose either Tsubakiya Specialty Blend Coffee or Tsubakiya Blend Tea as your beverage of choice. For an additional 110 yen including tax, you can also choose from a variety of premium blend coffees.
Large diced jet-black coffee jelly. Toppings include vanilla ice cream, whipped topping, and mint. Sprinkled on top is what looks like cocoa powder.
The coffee jelly is soft and has a pleasantly refreshing bitter taste and aroma. It is very refreshing and goes down your throat nicely!
The smooth whipped cream and melt-in-your-mouth vanilla ice cream are a perfect match. The coffee jelly has a strong bitterness, so it does not leave a heavy taste even when combined with vanilla ice cream.
What I personally enjoyed was the slightly frozen part of the coffee jelly in contact with the vanilla ice cream! You can enjoy the crunchy and crispy texture. It reminds me of the crunchy part of a cream soda where the ice cream meets the drink. ...... This kind of "part that is not the main attraction but is nice to have" is nice, isn't it? ......
The coffee has a sharp and crisp taste. It comes with milk and gum white, but if you go to the trouble of making it, you should enjoy it black at first sip!
Although the set is a bit pricey at about 1,800 yen, you can enjoy the luxury of Tsubakiya Coffee's "Coffee Jelly and Vanilla Ice Cream". How about a small reward for a day of hard work?
