Glico ice cream and ice products features unique characteristics that can satisfy customers of all market segments with its innovative products made from no. 1 quality and technology. There are wide variety of Glico ice cream products and in this post AnakJajan are going to show you some of our favorites that we highly recommend you to try.
Basically you can find Glico Ice Cream conveniently and easily anywhere such as combini or minimarts, supermarket or vending machines.
Ice No Mi
Let’s start with our most favorite item, Ice No Mi, bite size gelato in round ball shape. Both the flavor and texture are very unique, the balls will melt instantly and the flavor will explode when you put it in the mouth. It’s available in Grape, Mandarin Orange and White cafe au lait flavors but they also launch seasonal flavors for limited time regularly for example Melon and Peach flavors during our Spring 2016 trip. Me and Mr. Jajan enjoy Grape flavor the most with its juicy 80% fruit juice inside, it’s like eating the real grape but in ice version.
As a big fan of cone ice cream, Giant Cone product by Glico is satisfying in terms of taste with harmonious combination between smooth ice cream, crunchy cone, crunchy chocolate and toppings, we can see why it’s one of the best selling items in Japan. You can find Choco & Nuts, Cookie & Chocolate, Milk & Chocolate flavors along with seasonal limited edition flavors. There was Matcha Raw Chocolate version during our visit in Autumn 2016 where they use Japanese Uji matcha.
This new product is the most talked product among our peers since it has a special and unique texture unlike any other ice cream products we all have ever tasted, moist yet soft cake-like texture with rich depth of flavor. Imagine eating a rich delicious cake but in ice cream form. MUST MUST TRY!
Favorite and classic frozen treat among Japanese that is perfect for sunny day, smoothie packaged in two single serving sized tubes. Very refreshing and smooth without being overly sweet.
Parfait ice cream in a cup, creamy smooth ice cream available in Grape, Strawberry and Chocolate Marble. Me and Mr. Jajan love the Chocolate Marble flavor with bitter sweet chocolate ice cream and sauce made from Belgian chocolate also the unique crunch texture from chocolate layer giving us a memorable sensation.
Glico also produces a series of product called Calorie Control Ice Cream where the ice cream contains only half the calories of normal ice cream products making it’s perfect option for those who are concerned about calories and diet. AnakJajan tried one of the products, Matcha Azuki Monaca 80 Kcal and to my surprise it tasted just as delicious as any other ice cream product with its delicate combination between Uji matcha and red bean, ahh where have I been?? missing out something amazing this whole time.
Seventeen Ice is a popular staple all over the country and you can find the vending machine anywhere offering 17 different flavors of ice cream, all flavors are undoubtedly yummy and worth to try but there’s two flavors that AnakJajan really like, Monaka Chocolate & Nuts, smooth vanilla ice cream with crunchy chocolate and peanut in monaka, and Chocolate Mint stick ice cream with refreshing mint flavored ice cream and delightful crunch texture from chocolate chips.
There’s one of a kind vending machine for Seventeen Ice that will make people dance for ice cream, the world’s only “dance and buy ice cream vending machine”. The unique vending machine that AnakJajan visited is located in Abeno Q’s Mall Osaka, when you purchase the ice cream, you can choose to dance along with famous Japanese idols where your dance will be scored and after that you will get the ice cream. It’s such a unique experience where the people and vending machine can communicate and interact.
