Refreshing Shaved Ice With Snoopy’s Friend Woodstock!

At the PEANUTS Cafe in Nakameguro, Tokyo, and Kobe, Hyogo, along with the PEANUTS DINER in Yokohama, the much-anticipated annual “Woodstock’s Shaved Ice” menu is making its return! Using Snoopy’s best friend Woodstock along with companions Raymond and Harriet as inspiration, refreshing “kakigori” flavored shaved ice will help keep you cool during the intense summer heat!

Woodstock’s Shaved Ice Eat-in (940 yen including tax)

Woodstock’s Shaved Ice is flavored with a refreshing blend of pineapple, orange, and lemon syrup alongside lemon-flavored cotton candy and whipped cream to bring Woodstock’s iconic crest to life. Pour on the accommodating passionfruit sauce and get stuck in!

Woodstock’s Shaved Ice Take-out (760 yen including tax)

The take-out version is flavored with passionfruit sauce, lemon foam, and lemon syrup, making it a little different from the regular edition. Underneath the ice lies a handful of real pineapple and orange, giving it an energizing, healthy touch. Bursting with the summery color of Woodstock, this refreshing treat is a great accompaniment on a hot day out!

Raymond’s Shaved Ice (940 yen including tax)

The one and only purple member of the Beagle Scouts, Raymond’s shaved ice is flavored with an exquisite purple syrup made from crisp and juicy grapes. It also comes with a helping of luscious grape sauce to drizzle over before jumping in.

Harriet’s Shaved Ice (940 yen including tax)

The lone female of the Beagle Scouts, Harriet’s Shaved Ice is a tropical mix of frozen mango, lemon, and mango syrup. Topped off with a helping of lemon-flavored cotton candy affixed with Harriet’s trademark pink ribbon, this version is undoubtedly the most eye-catching of the three. Of course, after taking a few bites, you can change the flavor by adding the accompanying passionfruit sauce.
