In Japan, Häagen-Dazs often creates amazing limited-edition flavors to satisfy the appetites of ice cream enthusiasts, and it looks like they've also gotten into the tradition of fukubukuro! This mouth-watering collection came with 6 ice creams for a fraction of the original price. Now the only question is, who gets which?
