Strawberry Red Bean Ice Cream and Waffles with Strawberry Jam

One of our favorite things to do when seeking out Snack Pairings is to combine flavors from different countries! But this works best if you can find flavors to match in neighboring pavilions, of course. :-)

If you’re looking for something fruit-flavored but a little off the beaten path, head into the China Pavilion and try the Strawberry Red Bean Ice Cream at the Joy of Tea kiosk (sometimes it’s found at Lotus Blossom Cafe as well).

The dense, creamy dessert is less sweet than traditional strawberry ice cream, and it has an interesting flavor profile. (Not a lot of “bean” flavor in here, so not to worry if you’re not a fan.)

Now what’s better than ice cream? Ice cream and waffles! ;-)  Pair up that ice cold treat with the Waffles and Jam in the Norway Pavilion at Kringla Bakeri og Kafe.

The waffles are (usually) warm and fresh. This is a great hot-meets-cold snack.

    I’ve often wondered about the red bean ice cream. This would be a good way to work it; I love waffles and jam, so to combine it with the red bean ice cream would be a good way to eat something I’m hesitant to try!
