Looking for Green Tea Ice Cream

FatCharles | Feb 18, 2008 03:36 PM

I'm a big fan of green tea ice cream. From experience, the ones served at Japanese restaurants tend to be darker in color and have a stronger flavor. This is what I'm looking to buy for home. Except the only kind I've been able to find in stores is the Maeden En brand, which is lighter in both color and flavor. I've looked everywhere, like the various JAS Marts in the city and even at the Mitsuwa market in Fort Lee.
Finally I just asked at Japanese restaurants. They wouldn't tell me. They always claim they don't know but I suspect that's just the Japanese polite way of saying "I wont tell you". I've gotten this same response at 4 separate places.
Can somebody help? I've been searching for the good stuff for months now. Specifically I'm looking for the brand, and a place to buy some.
