There are a lot of weirder ice cream flavours in Japan. Like squid and pit viper - yes you heard that right, pit viper ice cream !.

I thought tomato WAS a fruit

I'd probably buy the carrot-orange one. I like carrot/orange juice so I kinda see that working. Cherry/tomato on the other hand

Botanically a berry, but culinarily treated as a vegetable.

I heard this on the news last night. Kinda reminds me of our moms, getting us to eat our veggies using a disguise, almost like that V8 drink, or the commercial where if they're using this ranch dressing, all the kids will want to eat their veggies. Will it (really) work? For me - sounds better than pit vipor or squid (Thanks Postman)

berry would be bananas not tomatoes? I believe the tomato was categorized from fruit to vegetable for customs issues in late 1800's

Cream sauce on veggies is excellent, so the vegetable cream combination is good.

I'm not so sure about sugar and veggies, but people eat brown sugar on yams and almost all salad dressings have sugar in them.

The manufacturer will probably throw enough sugar in it that you'll never know there a trace of vegetable in it. I'll certainly give it a try if i see it..

At a guess take out the dairy and replace with water and marshmallow base mix.
