In Japan, land of all that is inexplicably and uselessly cool, there’s a tube of frozen cream that looks, and supposedly tastes, just like a sweet potato. Because f*cking Japan.
First introduced in 2011 by the Imuraya Confectionary Company, this frozen yaki-imo (roasted sweet potato) has, after a three year hiatus, returned to stores for fall, bringing along with it all manner of confusing and creamy goodness. The outer skin is a rosy, sweet potato-flavored wafer, and the insides are made of sweet potato-flavored cream, sweet potato paste, and bits of chocolate.
If you think about it, there’s actually a fair amount of real sweet potato in this thing, which means it’s practically healthy. Ergo, feel free to a couple. Or you know, fifty.
