The ice pop has a refreshing texture mixed with popsicle and shaved ice, and it's sold for only about 60 yen. Their basic flavor is soda, however, sometimes they release interesting flavors such as the legendary corn potage flavor, which took a break from sales because the company couldn't keep up with production.
