Ice Cream Moon Cakes at Häagen-Dazs in China
In China, Häagen-Dazs is considered a high end ice cream brand. Their branch on Nanjing Lu, Shanghai's main drag has a doorman.
Since we were in China during the Autumn moon festival, on special at Häagen-Dazs, was an ice cream moon cake that came in chocolate or strawberry flavors. At $12US, they were expensive, even more so for the Chinese, but since we were on holiday, we got both kinds to try out. They were beautiful to look at, and the ice cream was indeed delicious. To our surprise, for the "yolk" of the moon cake, they had a yellow mango sorbet in the middle.
