Candy Plush Strawberry and Milk Shaved Ice; a New Take on a Summer Classic

INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO’s original summer shaved ice returns starting June 13.

Last year’s popular Cotton Ice treat, which inventively fused cotton candy with shaved ice, has been reimagined in an entirely new flavor. The Candy Plush comes served in a double-layered, vacuum-insulated titanium dish that keeps the shaved ice chilled. Slip your spoon in and discover a serving of ice cream made from cacao pulp juice, topped by smooth natural ice from Karuizawa and fluffy milk-flavored cotton candy.

The cotton candy is roasted at your table, releasing a pleasantly sweet milky aroma. The cotton candy melts, coating the chilled strawberries in the ice and conjuring up a crunchy candy texture.

Grown in Japan and carefully selected according to the season, the strawberries are diced and powdered into a sauce that really augments the flavor of the shaved ice.

The ice cream is addictively good, its secret ingredient of cacao vinegar brings out the tropical taste of the cacao pulp. Pairing superbly with the strawberries, it’s a delight to eat as it is, but also melts into the strawberry and milk sauce, adding a novel and refreshingly sharp accent to the shaved ice.

After sampling the simple yet satisfying harmony of strawberries and milk, try pouring some of the accompanying cacao vinegar over the dish. The body and acidity of the vinegar really offsets and enhances the flavor of the shaved ice.

Strawberry and milk is a classic choice when it comes to kakigori-style Japanese shaved ice. This summer at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO, experience a bold new take on an old favorite.
