Pumpkin desserts might be common in America, but it’s still virtually unexplored territory for me. I did try a Haagen Dasz pumpkin pudding ice cream sandwich before in Japan, but now it was time for the real deal. I stumbled upon a cup of pumpkin ice cream, also by Haagen Dasz. There was no white chocolate or wafer in this one, just pure pumpkin ice cream and a swirl of caramel.
I’ll grant you that it was a good quality ice cream. Haagen Dasz ice cream usually is. I can’t say, however, that I tasted any pumpkin. Or at least the flavor wasn’t very strong. I’m still not sure whether that’s a good thing or not. I guess I’ll have to try it again somewhere else. The swirl of caramel did make a nice change of flavor while eating, so it wasn’t a complete disaster.
