I found an interesting piece of news in our Prefecture daily, The Shizuoka Shinbun (700,000 copies) this morning!
An ice-making company in Fuji City, Shunsai Yuzuan (President: Tuyoshi Saitoh) struck on the idea to create a “private” brand of ice creams to promote the famous products of Shizuoka Prefecture and neighbouring Prefectures after being asked by Touristic Parks and Resorts to help!
The ice cream come in cups of two different volumes: 80 cc and 120 cc. The 80 cc cups will come into 96 flavours whereas the 120 cc cups will introduce 72 flavours.
The price will range between 170 and 250 yen apiece.
As for the flavours, they will come from natural sources ranging from salt gathered in Heda and strawberries harvested in Izu to persimmons grown in Nagano Prefecture from more than 10 farms.
Great fun for gourmets and collectors!
