My First Hokkaido Ice Cream @ Shikisai-no-oka (四季彩の丘) in Where Else But Hokkaido [Japan]

Almost every friend who returned from Hokkaido told me that the most impressionable food is the ice cream and they have reminded me numerous times that i must try it when i am there.

I didn't forget the advice (not with the constant reminders) and got my hands on one at the flower field; Shikisai-no-oka (四季彩の丘).

In my excitement, i didn't even bother checking out the available varieties and immediately pointed towards the picture (above) at the cashier counter since it comprised of both ice cream and Hokkaido's famous rock melon! 

At 500 yen (about S$6), there was no regret as the Hokkaido ice cream was insanely creamy with an intense milkiness that was to die-for! The cantaloupe was sweet, unlike some cases in Singapore where you need the sweetness of the ice cream to cover the blandness of the fruit. 

Alex was so impressed; he got a vanilla soft serve at 300 yen! Obviously, we didn't regret the choice and happily indulged in the ice cream as we explored the farm. Almost got another one before we left but the machine had already closed for cleaning! 

Menu as appended above should you drop by Shikisai-no-oka (四季彩の丘). Because of this first taste of Hokkaido ice cream, i had one almost every day when i was there!
