Haagen-Dazs has announced the release of two new ice cream flavors in Japan. But instead of featuring candy bars, creamy caramel or even salty snacks, the U.S.-based brand wants you to eat your vegetables.

Haagen-Dazs will launch new vegetable and tomato ice cream in Japan - latimes.com

if it gets kids eating veggies,,,whats wrong with that??

although the national news anchor made a snide remark about this-along the lines as a self-defeating effort- because it was ice cream..


ive always thought - make some of the traditional unhealthy foods and make them taste good with veggies is a good idea..

i use to wonder- as a kid..why doesnt someone make a healthy cigarette?? inhale vitamins & minerals instead of carcinogens??
because it isnt that easy.....as a teacher once said-


the veggie ice cream would work,,,,if it is good,,,,that might validate me to eat more ice creams,,in the name of health ...

where is ben and jerrys on this??

I used to grind vegetables into a paste and mix it up my my hush puppy mix. The kids didn't know they aren't supposed to have flecks of orange, red and green in them. And once you dip them in ketchup, all you can taste is grease and ketchup, anyway. Kids loved them. ( I loved them, too.)

I didn't feed them this all the time, because we deep fried things like ..I dunno, once a month, maybe twice. It got vegetables in their face, though.

It would be more useful to make a vegan Haagen Dazs.

Carrot and tomato ain't that bad. Carrot is naturally sweet and tomato is kind of a fruit. If it's brussel sprout ice cream, then that's a little hard to swallow.

The Nestle company, which owns Edys and H-D, has put out a new line of Edy's Frozen Fruit-and-Vegetable bars. I haven't tried them, and I don't think I'll try tomato H-D, either. Of course, I may never get the opportunity, as I do not live in Japan.

What do you have to do to ice cream to make it vegan?
