Southern Land Polar Bear Ice Cream.

The cream tasted like thin condensed milk.

南国白くま(Nangoku Shirokuma/Southern Land Polar Bear) is a famous ice cream originally from Kagoshima prefecture in Kyushu area.
The original one was introduced back in around Showa 7~8, which is 1932~1933, by a cotton shop started selling shaved ice as a side job.

As a new menu, they put condensed milk over the shaved ice and were thinking what to name it.
The can of condensed milk had a image of polar bear so they named it as Southern Land Polar Bear.
(There're several theories.)
