If there is one sweet in Japan that beats all others, that’s ice cream. Specifically, their gelato. It’s that perfect blend of sweet and creamy with so many unique flavors; it makes for a fun experience each time. Today, Japanese gelato chain ViTO Gelato announced that they will be starting a new collaboration with EVANGELION 3.0+1.0 on 1 February 2021. They will be introducing several themed products and a special drink.
The collaboration will include five flavors which are available at ViTO Gelato stores in the Tokyo area. There will also be an exclusive flavor, Kiwi Grape, with an original cup and coloring based on the image of the EVA Unit 01. The sorbet base is a blend of red grape, with its mild sweetness and rich flavor, and white grape, with its elegant aroma and refreshing sweetness, accented with dried kiwi, which is rich in vitamin C and contains actinidin, a digestive aid. It is also recommended as an after-dinner dessert. On top of this, there will be character-themed cups and a Unit 01 themed drink that comes with a ViTO x EVANGELION Eco Bag that has imagery of the Spear of Longinus on it.
The ViTO x EVANGELION collaboration kicks off on Monday 1 February 2021 and will be available at ViTO Gelato stores around the Tokyo 23 district area. If you like gelato, sorbet, or EVANGELION and happen to be in the area, you might want to check this collaboration out.
