Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart, which opened the doors to its first New Zealand store last month, has unveiled another cheesy delight for its Kiwi customers.
The team at Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart have taken the tart filling and turned it into a unique cheesy soft serve ice cream.
From 26 September, two flavours will be available at the Auckland Queen Street store. Say Chizu, which stays true to the original Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart filling, and Berry Berry Legendary, which combines the creamy cheese with strawberry.
Say Chizu will cost $3.70 and Berry Berry Legendary will cost $3.90. Both will be served in a waffle cone.
A number of promotions and giveaways are being planned. This will include special deals for students celebrating Graduation Day, which also falls on the soft serve launch day.
New Zealand Manager, Marcus Teh said:
“The tarts themselves have proved very popular in New Zealand. Our customers love the subtle cheesy taste and the creamy texture. We couldn’t resist creating a soft serve version in time for the warmer weather. We’re looking forward to seeing people’s reactions and think they’ll go down really well – especially with cheese lovers or anyone after a treat that’s just a little bit different. The soft serve is the perfect combination of sweet and savoury.”
New Zealand’s first Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart store is located at Shop 5, 350 Queen Street, Auckland.
Along with the soft serve, the store sells freshly made Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts. The tarts are made using a three-cheese filling and a buttery shortcrust base. They are both sweet and salty, following a traditional recipe from Hokkaido, Japan’s northern-most island, known for producing half of all Japan’s milk and almost all of its cheese.
