TOKYO, April 22 (UPI) -- Would you eat veggie ice cream?

Häagen-Dazs Japan is about to debut two vegetable-based ice cream flavors for a new line called "Spoon Vege," set to hit shelves May 12.

To make it palatable, the company added fruity flavors to its vegetables, so the "Spoon Vege" line will be available in Tomato Cherry and Carrot Orange.

According to a press release, Tomato Cherry will combine the "sweetness and flavor of tomatoes" with the "acidity and fruity aroma of cherry." Carrot Orange will incorporate carrot flavors with the refreshing citrus taste or orange.

Each carton will contain about 8.5 percent fat from milk, about half the fat content of regular Häagen-Dazs.
