ICE CREAM FACTORY
ICE CREAM FACTORY (アイスクリームファクトリー) is a popular ice cream store run by Seeds Corp. (株式会社シーズ) at Sapporo Factory (札幌ファクトリー), a famous commercial complex, in Chuo ward, Sapporo city. About 30 types of ice cream and soft serve ice cream are sold. The store opens a business at a atrium, and the ceiling is high, so a sense of openness is felt. The store is small, and a place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks freely is not provided at the store, but tables are provided in front of the store, and everyone can use the tables freely, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
Sapporo Factory (サッポロファクトリー) a commercial complex in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and has been opened a business since 1993. Here used to be the first beer factory "Hokkaido Development Commission Brewery (開拓使麦酒醸造所)" in Japan. The ruins of buildings utilized an old atomosphere were rebeared as one of the largest shopping malls in the Japan. About 7,000,000 people come. Brick Building (レンガ館) has beautiful ivied walls, so superb fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn. Article is here
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
Ganache Caramel Cookie Ice Cream
I visited here around daytime on a weekday. The Sapporo Factory was crowded with a lot of visitors because of Bon vacation, and 5 preceding customers lined up in front of the store. I lined up, too. About 10 minutes later, my turn had come. I ordered a Ganache Caramel Cookie Ice Cream (生チョコキャラメルクッキー) at a cash register desk. Their ice cream had 3 types of size, regular size, large size and extremely large size, and I chose the large size. The price was JPY 540. A plastic cup or a waffle cone could be chosen, if customers chose the waffle cone, they had to pay JPY 30 extra. I chose the waffle cone, so I paid JPY 570 in total.
Interestingly, they showed a demonstration to cook an ice cream in front of customers. They mixed the ice cream with topping ingredients, and cooked it on a plate of -30 C. That had been completed for about 3 minutes. I ate it immediately, and ganache had an interesting texture. It was very sweet, but I enjoyed the Ganache Caramel Cookie Ice Cream. Thanks for the tasty ice cream!
