Asian restaurants never cease to surprise us. McDonalds Japan has decided to welcome summer by introducing a refreshing and local product into the market.

This time, it’s a slightly sweet and sour ice cream mix. The treat is made with the trademark fruit from the southern island of Kyushu called hyuganatsu.

What in the World is Hyuganatsu?

To get an idea of why this fruit was chosen, we’ll break the name down.

The area from which it originates is called “Hyuga,” an old name for Miyazaki Prefecture, and “natsu,” is the Japanese word for summer.

It is believed the fruit is a hybrid between a pomelo and a Japanese yuzu citrus fruit, resulting in a juicy bittersweet taste.

The resulting product is called the Hyuganatsu Cheesecake McFlurry, topped with a softly textured sponge-cake and drizzled with some of the special sweetened hyuganatsu sauce that will make your mouth water right before you take the first mouthful.

Once you have the first mouthful, you’ll feel the small pieces of the fruit that add an extra original flavor.

With a cost of only 290 yen (less than U$3) and only for a limited time (June 1 to the end of July), this is definitely a dessert to have after a salty lunch on a sunny day.
