こだわりのアイスクリーム、『MOW(モウ)』 試食会開催 
Well-loved MOW ice cream tasting event


The year is coming to an end and what a busy time of year it has been! I hope everyone is doing well and is in good health.

In mid-November, Candlewick held a tasting event for MOW by Morinaga Milk at its office in Omotesando.

MOW Milk Vanilla


今回の試食会には、アイスクリームや食関連で活躍されているブロガーやジャーナリストの皆さまにご参加いただきました。 MOWの原料・製造へのこだわりや環境問題への取り組みについてご説明した後、MOWの定番商品『MOWミルクバニラ』をはじめ、11月より期間限定で発売されている新商品『MOWダージリンティー』、さらには、MOWを使ってご自宅で簡単に作れるアイススイーツなど、様々なかたちでMOWをお召し上がりいただきました。

MOW is an ice cream containing carefully selected ingredients and its rich milk flavor accounts for its deliciously smooth taste. Even better, no emulsifiers or stabilizers are used!

Bloggers and journalists active in the ice cream and food industry joined the tasting event. After explaining about MOW’s ingredients, the careful production process and activities relating to environmental issues, everyone sampled MOW Milk Vanilla and a limited seasonal new item for November MOW Darjeeling Tea, along with ice cream sweets that can be easily made at home.


One of the guests was an ice cream super fan who tastes 30 to 50 kinds of ice cream a month and a journalist who samples more than 100 kinds of sweets every month! The new Darjeeling Tea flavor proved popular with everyone who commented on its mouth-watering smell. The product is made using carefully selected tealeaves. Please try it if you have the chance, as it’s limited to this season!

Candlewick is working with Morinaga Milk to develop unique PR activities that will encourage consumers to choose MOW ahead of other brands available at supermarkets and convenience stores.

On July 7 and 8, Candlewick held an exciting event at Shinjuku Takashimaya. Spa Resort Hawaiians hula girls performed a dynamic hula show and the audience were later invited on stage, took hula lessons and performed with the hula girls in front of the crowd. Some lucky participants were interviewed by a TV crew, which added more excitement to the day.

Customers enjoying the show


After each performance, the hula girls made surprise appearances at the Loco Boutique booth on the 11th floor and took photos with customers.

実はこの時間に様々なドラマがあったのです! 「今日これからハワイアンズへ行くの!」という女の子がいたり、スパリゾートハワイアンズで結婚式を挙げたカップルがたまたま通りかかり、「結婚式の時のダンサーさん?!」と思わぬ再会があったり。スタッフ一同、不思議なご縁を感じずにはいられませんでした。
