darker spirits into the light world of white wines and “white” alcoholic beverages like vodka “It’s a tasteful white spirit” said Toru Kumagai an official with Kikkoman Inc a major Shochu producer “These days transparent drinks are preferred by Japanese consumers because of their healthy image “It's popular among both the younger and older generations and we assume this demand will remain

alcohol diluted with water and very similar to vodka Type “B” is more traditional and distilled from rice barley or sweet potatoes or even sesame black sugar or chestnuts and ranges from 40 to 72 proof Type “A” is very popular with young people who mix it with fruit juices liqueurs and other liquids It’s considered stylish and the color combinations appeal to Jhe Japanese aesthetic sense that

effort to utilize the excess alcohol produced by the introduction into Japan of Western distilling methods For years it was a low-image mainstay of workingmens’ bars Type “B” holds more appeal to middle-aged and older drinkers although it’s very popular in many of the Jiny neighborhood clubs that dot Japan The most popular way to drink Type “B” shochu in the winter is in a tall glass with hot water It dates from mediaeval times and sometimes is made from the dregs left over from sake brewing 875 385 840 525 2520 3920 2590 21 ‘14 American palates crave ice cream ' By RENEE PECK Ncwhout Ntws Strvlct NEW ORLEANS — Some ice cream lovers’ can remember the days when the choice was between vanilla chocolate and strawberry Only the most innovative would dare to put nuts fruits liqueurs or candies in the ice cream freezer But America’s tastfc buds have blossomed Ice cream in case you haven’t noticed lately has come a long way indeed Just how' far was apparent at a recent meeting of the International Association of Ice Cream Manufacturers in New Orleans “Manufacturers are introducing new products at a very rapid rate” says Martin Friedman editor of Dancer Fitzgerald Sampler's New Product News and whose self-confessed philosophy is “Life is short so let's eat dessert first" In 1983 new food products were up 19 percent from the previous year according to Friedman In 1984 new products were up another 10 3 percent from 1983 And many of those newcomers can be found in the dessert bin''' “There is continued consumer interest in more natural healthier items” says Friedman “But there’s a stronger countertrend" toward super-premium quality products that are higher priced classier The big hit at the New York confection fair last year was the Dove Bar — an upgraded ice cream pie ” Part of the new wave toward high class is because ice cream no longer is strictly for kids Adults are digging in and in larger numbers “Kobenhagen is made a long way from Denmark” says Friedman of one new ice cream label oiT the market “This is ethnic imagery and it has tremendous snob appeal There’s American-made ‘Italian gelat-to’ and the French have arrived — La' Glacee Apres And Pet’s come out with an entire line of great ice creams of the South — banana pudding praline” Why If the name doesn’t send you what’s inside sho"uld Finding your favorite baked goods tucked into a vanilla or peach or raspberry baseis quite the thing these days ' ’ You can get Oreo cookies' crumbled into"your ice cream as ' well as Famous Amos’ chocolate — chip cookies A Whitman’s Sampler of gooey chocolate flavors is packed into an ice cream box identical to the candy cordial one 1 “Campbell’s is testing an upscale line of cookies in ice cream under its Pepperidge Farm label”' adds Friedman ‘and Sara Lee too is transferring its most popular baked goods into ice cream “Flavored chips are big in the dessert scene now The chocolate and peanut butter combination is very hot and would be a natural in an ice cream Choco-clafl ' mousse and chocolate mocha are big flavors now finding their way into ice creams And Amaretto will be the hottest new flavor for ‘85 It’s big in the drink field and will certainly hit desserts” Flavored coffees and fruit and nut combinations are two other current trends that should hit the ice cream cartons soon says Freidman Tne year’s hottest new “ice cream” is not ice cream at all Tofutti may look sound and smell like it has an unforgivable amount of butterfat but it contains no dairy products whatsoever Made from tofu it carries the lowly soybean to new heights Invented by New York deli owner David Mintz in efforts to create a kosher dessert that could be served with both meat and dairy entrees Tofutti has captured the American palate The original soft-serve version of Tofutti carries a modest calorie count of 128 for 4 ounces The newer hard-pack version ranges from 210 to 230 per 4-ounce serving REGENCY MALL shop anywhere else? t i
