Japan Accidentally Invented Ice Cream That Doesn’t Melt

This is great news if you love ice cream. Especially if you want to eat it while sitting in the sun over the course of several hours. Researchers in Japan have ACCIDENTALLY invented a new type of ice cream that DOESN’T MELT . .

Earlier this year, a pastry chef at a place called the Biotherapy Development Research Centre in western Japan was told to create a dessert using an extract from strawberries called polyphenol. (Pronounced poly-FEE-nawl.)

When he mixed it with cream, it solidified instantly. And he thought it was a problem at first. But then someone realized the ice cream STAYED solid for a lot longer than normal ice cream does.

They’ve been selling it as popsicles since April, but we’re just hearing about it now. It’s called Kanazawa Ice, after the city it was invented in.

A reporter recently stood in the sun with one for five minutes, and it didn’t melt at all. Someone else hit it with a hair dryer for five minutes, and that didn’t melt it either.

It does melt eventually though . . . which is probably good news for your digestive tract. Someone let one sit out in their apartment, and it stayed solid for about an hour. But after three hours, it was pretty mushy.

It retained its original shape though, and was still cold when they tried it. Unfortunately you can only get them in Japan for now. One Popsicle costs about $5.
