Black Sesame Swirkle

Today I bought a Black Sesame Swirkle (黒胡麻スワークル - Kuro-goma Suwakuru) frozen drink from Tulley's in Tokyo. I guess it's strange that I'm posting about a drink, but it was so different that I had to post about it!

It was quite the interesting flavour! 
It was mildly sweet, with a hint of cream, and a nice dose of black sesame. Of course, I had no idea what was coming when I took my first sip. It wasn't until I tried it again that I really appreciated it's flavour. 

This drink is one of those crazy Japanese/Western fusion food/drinks that are available everywhere around here. Kuro-goma is a very common ingredient in snacks in Japan, most notably in rice crackers. But the introduction of this popular Japanese flavour in a creamy milkshake is quite nice. 
I'm definitely going back for seconds.

Wow, sounds like a unique flavour! Not sure that I would ever have thought of putting sesame in a drink, but I believe you that maybe it works! Pays to be adventurous, I guess!
