Eating Häagen-Dazs Vegetable Flavored Ice Cream

How about some nice Häagen-Dazs ice cream? With tomatoes and cherries? If that's not your thing, you can always try carrots and oranges. Japanese site Gigazine did just that.

As previously mentioned, Häagen-Dazs has released some interesting flavors in Japan. But these might be the most interesting. Ever.

For the tomato and cherry flavor, Gigazine reported that that the first impression is tasting tomato juice, followed by a sweet flavor. It's not a sweet tomato flavor, but rather, it apparently tastes like sugary has been added.

From the sound of it, however, the carrot and orange ice cream has a strong carrot taste, followed by the bitterness of an orange peel, which apparently cuts out the earthy carrot flavor. That being said, it does seems like carrots and oranges are a pretty good match. And this ice cream is apparently sweet as well.

Gigazine says these unusual ice creams might seem like a suitable after dinner treat, but notes that they might not go well with coffee or tea. How about a plate of lettuce?
