This Ice-Cream Flavor Will Shoyu That Soy Sauce Belongs on Desserts, Too

Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!

( When you think of shoyu—the Japanese word for soy sauce—you probably think of ramen or other savory Japanese dishes. But there's more to the classic condiment than just using it for main meals; its deep, umami flavor also works wonders in the sweet realm, and you can use it to create one-of-a-kind desserts—as local ice-cream brand Kurimu has done with their Shoyu Caramel Ice Cream!

The Shoyu Caramel Ice Cream (P420/16 ounces) is described to be a rich, savory-sweet flavor with complex caramel notes and a hint of umami, and Kurimu recommends pairing it with cold brew or espresso. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it—think of salted caramel, but with a different kind of depth. It might just be your new favorite ice cream flavor.
