The newest ice cream flavor set to hit shelves in Japan is none other than crab.
Kani Doraku, a popular chain of crab specialty restaurants in Japan, is producing the special ice cream, which will be released on Nov. 6.

The unique treat, which reportedly consists of salty vanilla ice cream and chunks of crab meat, features salt from Christmas Island in the Republic of Kiribati.
According to Kani Doraku, it took around two years of repeated trials to create the final product. “The hardest part was figuring out how to combine the flavor of the crab with the vanilla ice cream,” they said in a press release.
Although restaurant chains in Japan have released special items nationwide in the past, from peanut butter burgers to ice burgers, Kani Doraku’s crab ice cream will only be available for purchase at the souvenir section of the chain’s main branch in Osaka’s Dotonbori district. Anyone interested in buying a tub can expect to shell out 500 yen (approximately $3.37).
