Cremia Ice Cream: It Doesn’t Get Better than This

I feel like, since we’ve come to Japan, everything I’m experiencing is a superlative. I’ve had the best steak of my life, the best fish, the best pancakes, and now the best ice cream. Some people think we’re overexaggerating; I see those accusations a lot in the comments of our YouTube videos. But I don’t know how to dissuade them. We’re genuinely eating some of the most amazing food we’ve ever eaten. And we’re not youngins; we’ve traveled a lot and eaten a lot. And, hell, Japan makes some amazing freaking food.

I’d like people to think of Japan that way more, if I can. There’s the stereotype of people interested in Japan, and how they are interested in Anime and Manga and Video Games or whatever. But can I be an otaku for food? Is there shame in that? A Foodtaku? Futaku? We’re totally futaku. That’s too complicated. “Fat” might be better. I love Japanese food so much; I’m so freaking fat!

Ok now that I’ve made fun of our weight, let’s get back to the best soft serve ice cream ever. I realize that I think we skipped out on the importance of the cone. Because oftentimes good ice cream has lame cones, or so so cones. I rarely have a cone and think “wow, that’s a great cone,” but this cone here, it’s a great cone. It’s the perfect soft serve ice cream served in the best cone for the soft serve. It’s a cone that compliments the flavour of the ice cream, and is delicious in and of itself.

Otherwise, I know you’ve got lots of interesting things you can research that are of great importance, but if you feel like learning more about the amazingness of this ice cream – which some would argue is really important I mean COME ON IT’S SO GOOD – then head to Cremia’s Page. There’s an English version of the page. Don’t click it. The Japanese version is better. Put it through Google Translate so you can get the gist of it :D

So, if you’re coming to Japan, give this ice cream a shot. I don’t need to give you an address for it because you’ll just find it around. We found it by our subway station. We went to the Tokyo Dome yesterday to watch Nitro Circus (WHICH WAS RAD AS HELL), and they had it there, too. We’ve seen it around many places. Keep your eyes open for it and indulge as soon as you can. You won’t regret it. Unless you’re lactose intolerant. Then you’ll regret it a bit, but you’ll still think it’s worth it. The mouth feel is worth it. WORTH IT!

Otherwise, if you’d like to see how Meemers reacted to dancing, check out the bloopers below :D

  1. That looks and sounds way good~ Yet, it kind of reminds me of an ice cream from South Korea that I ate a while back.
    I wonder where in NYS I could find Japanese ice cream.
    I’m still wondering about how many nasty’s are in NYS. ~_~;

  2. Took a while to get back here but….I guess that I thought that this was just such a perfect little video that it seemed complete without my saying anything ^_^v. I think that adding in the little seguays really made it great, so Simon and Martina and I was impressed with the research you did on it. I wonder if they use agar agar in the ice cream? I’ve seen many Japanese desserts use it as a thickener but it’s supposed to be a bit of an umai-adder too. I managed to get some to try, I think I’ll try adding it to home-made ice cream next. BTW, why torture yourself with a kale smoothie? They can be okay but really not an intended use of kale (in my book). There are far yummier ways to eat kale like kale/collard greens soup or carribean chicken with rice and beans with kale. I never dreamed that kale could be yummy but these two dishes certainly make me want to eat more. Let me know if you want the recipes. As you get older, you notice that the whole fasting/feasting routine starts to not work as well, especially if you’re not exercising a lot. The easiest thing to do is just try to eat your daily 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables (not juice, not pickles, not root vegetables, <25% dried fruit) and see how hungry you are then. It actually takes a fair bit to put that much fruit/veg in your day, you'd be surprised that you're not so hungry the rest of the time and you'll lose some extra pounds (after a couple of weeks). A tasty big green salad with lots of fruit, nuts, and cheese can fulfill 3-4 servings and fill you up. Fasting makes your body go overboard when you finally do eat and then directly stores most of it to fat (to save up for the next fast and your body will cling to that fat for dear life – harder to lose it). It's also difficult to truly enjoy food (taste it) if you're so hungry. This is why anorexia is such a vicious cycle – try to avoid fasting if you can, I appreciate your continued good health Hmmm…..I’m going to take my own advice and make a nice Waldorf salad: 3 kinds of lettuce (4-5 cups), 1 cup cucumbers, 1 cup green or red peppers, handful celery (a little), 1.5 cups grapes, 4 apples (lemon juice to avoid brown), 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup toasted almonds (or pears and toasted walnuts), 1:1 mayonnaise and sourcream for dressing (about 1-2Tbsp each per big bowl serving, makes about 6 big servings?). Sounds fatty but there is less fat overall than you think and that fat makes the salad filling, easier to digest, and healthier (Omegas) and no added sugar or salt (just what’s in the cheese and mayo). Keeps all week without dressing on it.

  4. Ha! I seriously though that Dan was able to squeeze out those tears for real! I was like ‘Wow, he must of took some acting classes’. Lol! It was just Martina pouring water on his face. And the lip quiver thing! Dan, you can be really adorable sometimes.

  5. It speaks volumes when an ice cream and cone had a vast amount of research and science behind it. I too am an ice cream monster and I wish I knew about Cremia ice cream when I was in Japan two months ago Dx. Thanks Simon and Martina, I’ll definitely keep an eye out next time I visit Japan!

  6. Icceee Creeaaammm. That looks amazing!!! I want to have some even though I know that my body won’t be able to handle that much milk fat.

    Simon, you might want to add more to that kale drink. Fruit can overpower the taste of the veggie, so I’d recommend adding some fruit to sweeten it up. Maybe some apple and banana can help sweeten it a bit.

  7. I’m rather wondering why you drank a kale juice if you didn’t enjoy it. :P I forgot to ask this for Valentine day but can you talk about the most romantic places in Tokyo?

  9. I will never get tired of watching your videos lol. (I’m a chat agent) and I spend all day watching you guys while I chat with people. It has always been a dream of mines to go to (or even move to) Japan, and I can easily say I am living that out through you guys. Keep up the awesome videos and the shining attitudes!

  10. As if I weren’t already excited enough, all of your Japan food videos are making me even more so for my upcoming trip in April!! CAN’T WAIT TO GET FAT! :D

  11. I love how meta the editing in this is, especially considering the bit about Martina editing while Simon was playing with Spudgy and Meemers had to be filmed and edited as well.

    When I am in Japan next month I will definitely go hunt this ice cream down – I am lactose intolerant but I’ve got pills to help reduce the suffering. Also I feel this will be more than worth and potential repercussions.

  12. I got the chance to try it last hear at Asakusa, hands down best ice cream cone i’ve ever had.
    If you guys like gelato, you should check out far east bazaar shop. Their fig gelato is the bomb.

  13. Sometimes I envy how well behaved Meemers is. My Kitkat would maul me if I tried to make her dance.. or really do anything that wasn’t her idea.

    • You know, I learned about Ramen Otakus, who are called Ra-Ota, and it’s pronounced like Router. SUPER COOL!

      • OMG! I didn’t know that. ARGH! This is the reason I LOVE Japanese and all other languagues for that matter. In Swedish I don’t think food otakus would ever work as a term or even like culturally. Like do we even have a Swedish word for “overly enthusiastic”? I don’t think so. But then we have our own things that don’t translate well to other languagues. Linguistics is so much fun!
