Garigari-Kun is up to his old tricks again!

Thankfully less weird than last year’s Napolitan flavour, Garigari-kun has set his sights on Tiramisu, the popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert and one of my personal favourites! Can’t hurt to try, right?

Priced at a very reasonable ¥120(67p). Ingredients: mostly mascarpone kakigori(shave ice) with little bits of chocolate cookie and coffee sauce inside, all encased in cocoa flavour ice.

The cocoa ice outer is actually pretty bland, very watery and light on the taste, it has that “fake chocolate” kind of taste which I strongly dislike. Inside is much better, still generally a bit tasteless but the coffee sauce was delicious. All in all it was ok, but bland is not a word I tend to associate with tiramisu, it should be strong, sweet and plentiful!

I should really learn and just stick to the soda flavour – it’s the best, but curiosity gets the better of me! Spotted a pineapple flavour one today too which sounds potentially great, but we will see.
