Ben & Jerry’s ice cream-flavor puns have always been top-notch (“Cherry Garcia” is a prime example), but its latest Japan-only flavor takes things to a new level.

A scoop of “Strawbearry” (¥580) — or Straw-bear-ry, if you missed it — includes pieces of white chocolate polar bears mixed into scoops of regular strawberry with a marshmallow-flavored sauce, which adds a nice burst of sweetness to the fruity ice cream.

If you are looking for something with a slightly less-sugary taste, the Harajuku store in Tokyo also sells a Strawbearry shake (¥600), which is less sweet. Whichever you opt for, they will both leave you — ahem — beary pleased this summer.
