Garigari-kun series - vegetable chowder flavored ice popsicle


Everyone knows what Garigari-kun is here in Japan. It's a famous ice popsicle series that has been sold since 1981 by Akagi Nyugyo Co., Ltd, and the ice pop's mascot, who is designed to be an eternal elementary school kid, also called Garigari-kun, is something that you won't forget after seeing it once.  

The ice pop has a refreshing texture mixed with popsicle and shaved ice, and it's sold for only about 60 yen. Their basic flavor is soda, however, sometimes they release interesting flavors such as the legendary corn potage flavor, which took a break from sales because the company couldn't keep up with production.

This time, they are going to release the vegetable chowder flavor (called "White Stew" in Japanese) on October 29. You will be able to experience the creamy chowder flavor, diced potatoes and shaved ice at the same time in your mouth!
