Does Ice Cream Sandwich Come to Japan?
The Ice Cream Sandwich Comes of Age
The Ice Cream sandwich is literally means putting ice cream between two slices of bread, or on the waffle. This food looks like new, but it is really old. It was born in the early 1900s, so the ice cream sandwich is more than 110 years old. At first, it was sold by pushcart vendors in Bowery, Manhattan. Now Pearl & Ash, a virtuous restaurant in Bowery provide the ice cream sandwich to the customers. The New York Times expect it will be famous and popular.
When I see this article, I thought it must be imported to Japan. Japanese people likes foods that is famous in New York City. The city is the longing city for fashionable Japanese people. So many Japanese people desire to go to the NYC, and they loves food from there. Recentry, Magnolia Bakery, Shake Shack, DEAN & DELUCA, and many other cafe and restaurants come to Japan. Especially, the opening day of Magnolia Bakery in Tokyo, we should wait more than 2 hours to enter the shop. I went there on the day because of my curious, there are numerous people, so unfortunately I and my friend gave up to buy a cup cake. As I described, many Japanese people likes to enjoy the food from the New York City. Therefore, I convinced that the ice cream sandwich must be going well in Japan, especially Tokyo. Tokyo has many young people such as university students and office workers, these young people likes sweets. There are no reasons that the ice cream sandwich doesn't sell well. I expect it will probably come to Japan if it gets popular in Manhattan because Japanese people don't trust the food is good without expression of "All of New Yorkers love this food."
