Suika Bar

One afternoon, I was talking to a student about shaved ice and ice cream bars, and he mentioned liking the "suika bar", which is a watermelon-flavored ice bar, with chocolate chips for the "seeds". Naturally, I had to try one. 108 yen (including tax). It does taste good, sort of watermelon candy-like, and the chocolate stands out very well (the one case where I wish there were more seeds...) But, the red section freezes like a brick, while the green part melts faster, making it somewhat inconvenient to eat, even in the current Kagoshima heat. Not bad, for an occasional snack.
