Somewhat random inquiry here...
has anyone ever heard of Buds Ice-Cream?
Many moons ago when I was out in Beijing the shops stocked a premium ice-cream labelled 'Buds of San Francisco'; think Haagan Daaz without the crap advertising. Absolutely fantastic Green Tea ice-cream. It came in white tubs with blue lettering.
Anyhow, have never managed to find it on my trips stateside. Does anyone know if it is really a SF ice-cream, or just a marketing gimmick thought up by someone in a dairy in upstate Beijing?
