And it's called "Antoinette." So let them eat...um...ice cream!

Going on sale this December in Japan, Häagen-Dazs' Antoinette ice cream is made with, according to Japanese website NariNari, "high-grade red wine" from Bordeaux, France.

There is glittery, edible foil sprinkled a pink red wine sauce on top of the mellow-flavored wine ice cream. The bottom layer is a custard-flavored ice cream, and there is a sponge cake sandwiched in the middle.

The ice cream contains 0.6 percent alcohol, which is far, far less than in this wine ice cream and certainly won't get you tipsy.

As previously reported, Japan is no stranger to unusual Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
