Santa-no-Hige Has Soft Serve Ice Cream on Flesh of Melon -Popura Farm Head Office in Nakafurano-
June 16th, 2015
Popura Farm Head Office (ポプラファーム本店) is a store specializing in Santa-no-Hige (サンタのヒゲ * Santa Claus's beard) in Nakafurano town. You may not know what the Santa-no-Hige is. In fact, it is sweets that put soft serve ice cream on a flesh of melon. A smooth curve of appearance would look like santa claus's beard. But it becomes noted sweets of Furano district now. I visited the head store in order to eat such famous dessert.
When I read Tweets, Santa-no-Hige seems to be popular.

Santa-no-Hige has some kinds when I enter the store. A milk flavor soft serve ice cream seemed to be the most popular, but I wanted to eat a melon flavor soft serve ice cream and ordered a santa-de-mix (サンタデミックス) which is mixed the melon flavor soft serve ice cream with the milk flavor soft serve ice cream . The price was JPY 1200.
Diameter of melon was around 10 cm. A soft serve ice cream of around 20 cm in height was put on a flesh of melon. Because the bottom was round, it almost fell down. I ate the Santa-no-Hige while supporting with my hand. It was very sweet. Tasty! Besides, it melted steadily because it was fresh soft serve ice cream. I ate greedily and at last reached to the flesh of melon. I enjoyed eating the melon produced in Furano.
