One of Japan’s most popular dessert items — the Garigari-kun popsicle — is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and its maker, Akagi Nyugyo Co., is starting off the revelry with a special limited-edition flavor.

The first of 2021’s special Garigari-kun flavors is “Adult Garigari-kun Kiwi.” The fittingly green-hued bar is made with both green and gold kiwi, plus a whopping 44% fruit juice. While slightly pricier than the regular Garigari-kun offering at ¥100 before tax (rather than ¥70), it’s a small increase to enjoy something special.
