Ben & Jerry's (2012-04-22)

My favorite ice cream brand is finally opening in Tokyo! 

Ben & Jerry's ventured into the Japanese market by selling it in 7-11 several years ago, business flopped and they pulled out of the country.  This time they are returning with a vengence, setting up the flagship Scoop Shop store in Omotesando (kanji)and plan to open 30-50 shops in the next five years.  I hope they succeed this time.

I shall report back after we actually pay the shop a visit.  We're waiting for the fever to die down a bit so we don't have to wait for an hour to get a scoop of friggin' ice cream.
