Balls Of Joy


Not quite like the ACDC song. I'm thinking more T&T Supermarket. But I always think of the song when I think of T&T, Canada's Asian supermarket superstore! So my awesome dad sometimes helps my baking business by running grocery errands for me... I love my dad!! And the other day, along with cans of coconut milk and bags of leaky icing sugar, he brought with him two boxes of frozen delights from Asian Supermarket Land:

LOTTE!! Which is the yummiest most delightfully soft Japanese mochi covered ice cream balls; and the second box: weird-ass Imuraya-brand ice cream cone coated green tea ice cream and red bean filled frozen dessert.

Lotte taste test: Scrumptious. A light and airy ball of vanilla ice cream "enrobed" (hate that word, but ridiculously fun to use, strangely) in mochi jacket.

Weird-ass ice cream cone coated green tea ice cream thing: Weird-ass. The light green colored "coating" really tasted just like those unflavoured ice cream cones you get when you cheap out at an ice cream parlour and don't get the sugar cone.

If you're having a green tea and azuki bean ice cream craving, try seeking out Maeda-en brand! Buy a pint of each flavour and scoop it up, scoop it up. Or, buy some green tea ice cream and pre-packaged azuki beans found at Japanese grocery or probs T&T, and you have a delicious little Asian-zone sundae! Note to Vancouverites: I found Maeda-en at little Norm's Fruit & Salad on Commercial Drive and Gravelly Street. NICE!
