Yesterday I talked about the growing trend of meatless "meatballs" and how vegetables are encroaching on traditional recipes that you might never expect. Going along with this theme, Häagen-Dazs in Japan recently announced that they are releasing two new vegetable-flavored ice creams in May. Mhmm. You heard that right.

The new line of vegetable ice cream is called "Spoon Vege" and the two new flavors are "Tomato Cherry" and "Carrot Orange". This ice cream has about half the amount of milk fat (8.5%), making them (maybe?) slightly healthier than your normal pint of Häagen-Dazs ice cream.

I'm personally a big fan of vegetable-flavored yogurt from Blue Hill, so this new line of ice cream might actually be good. Would you try this ice cream if it came to the states?
