Time to get CRUNK’d

It started on Twitter.

“It’s back!”

“They had it!”

“I almost fainted when I saw it!”

It quickly went to Facebook. People posted pictures. People shared locations where it could be found, and where it was selling out. What was this buzz about?

The Crunky Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Bar. Awwww yeaaaaaah.

Hello, gorgeous!

If it weren’t for practically everyone I know online raving about it, I might have passed by the bland, unassuming packaging and gone for the Black Thunder, or the old stand by, Haagen Dazs.

I don’t particularly care for Crunky chocolates, either–they tend to be a bit waxy, I find. The name makes me giggle, but that’s about all they’re good for usually. I wonder if they know what “crunk” actually means, but I was pretty disappointed I didn’t get crazy or drunk the first time I tried it!

But I picked one of these bars up, and damn, I’m glad I did! Creamy mint ice cream with a thick layer of dark chocolate, studded with crisped rice, this mint bar is totally worth swooning over. Refreshing and delightful. And it was only ¥126 at our corner combini, which is way more affordable than those fancy Haagen Dazs.

Come to me, my lovely...

So if you’re in Japan, pick one up! If not, well, come visit. It’s worth it.

Have you gotten Crunk’d? What did you think?

    I am simply amazed at the perfect bite you took out of that ice cream in your photo! Mint chocolate is my absolute favorite and getting Crunk’d is the best…but nothing beats that perfect bite! lol.

    • Haha, I was totally trying to get a picture perfect bite! Part of the chocolate even tried to fall off and I was like a Stage Mother yelling at it to get back in place! (Ok, I probably shouldn’t yell at my ice creams, lol)

    Should check in my grocery stores, they carry a lot of Lotte products. (Oh that might be cause I shop mostly at Asian/Japanese grocery stores…)

    Yum! I’m so addicted to this… probably giving this baby inside me a sugar high far more often than she needs… Oh well, at least there’s fat in it to balance that out, right? ;)

    Have you tried the Black Thunder ice cream? I’m addicted to just the little chocolate bars that you find in the combini but the ice cream version is pretty damn good too. Only thing is it’s quite melty if you don’t eat it quick enough – dropped some on Little S’s head when I was feeding her the other day, world’s worst mummy or what?

    • Ooh, I love black thunder! Though one of my students is obsessed with them, and I thought she was being SO RUDE the first time she mentioned it–then I pulled my mind out of the gutter, hahah.

      Hahahaha! I’m sure Little S didn’t mind, though when I was nannying the baby hated having his face wiped! Still, I’m sure as soon as she knows the joys of it, she’ll be grabbing it away from you!

  9. OMG~~!~ Yesssss. You blogged about this! So super, happy, awesome! ^O^ Seriously, the sheer promise of these every summer is enough to keep me in Japan for the rest of my life haha. I’m going to make a vlog about these soon~!
