The weather is finally getting warmer and the cherry blossoms are starting to peek out here in Tokyo. So naturally, we’ve started planning all the snacks we’re going to much on during our cherry-blossom viewing parties and picnics.

We’ve already staked out some room in our tummies for Magnolia Bakery’s cherry blossom cupcakes, but we have to consider our ice-cream needs, too. For portable snacking, Häagen-Dazs‘ range of Crispy Sandwich ice cream treats are always a great option. And, as luck would have it, they’re rolling out a special new flavour for spring: Peach and Berry Tart!

The new flavour is due to go on sale from March 24 with a retail price of 294 yen (US$2.40) per sandwich. The sandwich consists of peach-flavoured ice cream coated with a strawberry coating and filled with berry sauce made with four varieties of berries, all sandwiched between two crispy wafers. The new sandwich is said to taste exactly like a peach and berry tart, albeit in ice cream sandwich form. Sounds pretty good to us!

Already, Twitter users in Japan have been getting excited about the ice-cream offering:

▲ “Häagen-Dazs peach and berry tart crispy sandwich! Looks so delicious!”

Some lucky snackers even seem to have gotten their hands on the sandwich already!

▲ “Peach and berry tart on sale from March 24!”

We can’t wait to stuff one of these yummy-looking ice cream sammidges down our necks while we’re out enjoying all that fresh spring air.
