Gari Gari Kun (which translates roughly to “Mr. Crunchy”) has been Japan’s most iconic frozen treat since the early ’80s and is finally making its long-awaited debut in Canada. Created out of the concept of shaved flavoured ice on a stick, a thin layer of Popsicle encapsulates large ice crystals that give a fantastically satisfying “crunch” with every bite. Soda is the long-standing classic flavour and they recently introduced a refreshing pear flavour perfect for hot summers.
