Japanese releases of Haagen-Dazs ice cream never seem to slow down with unusual flavors to mix with their high quality brand of ice cream. This time, they are bringing back the Japanese tradition favorite “Murasaki Imo (Purple sweet potato)” which debuted last summer, a few days before the beautiful Autumn leaf season starts. If you haven’t eaten a purple sweet potato, the taste doesn’t actually differ much from a regular sweet potato, but it's rich and sweet flavor finds a perfect hom in Japanese bento or as a small dish along with a Japanese set meal.

The Purple sweet potato Haggen Dazs is ranked as one of the top 3 customer’s favorite list, which had sold in 2012 and 2013. One of the big facts behind the awesome taste is the ingredient of Purple sweet potato itself is secretly known as one of the world's healthiest food vegetables, just 1 purple sweet potato away keeps a doctor away, which is a good way not to feel too guilty of eating too much ice cream..

In it's first run, it sold out fast all around the country, so get it soon if you ever have a chance to sweep by one of the many convenient stores in Japan.
