Aguni Junior High School students have created ice cream containing salt and gluey millet fried dough cookies made in Aguni. The students reported their achievement to Okinawa Governor Hirokazu Nakaima at the Prefectural Office on October 21.

The students studied the planning, development and sales of the ice cream during and after regular classes and worked on making the ice cream into a saleable item.
Fourteen-year-old Yuta Yonamine said, “We are confident about this product that tastes like salt and the brown sugar in karinto fried dough cookies.”

After tasting the ice cream Governor Nakaima said, “It was delicious and has a rich taste.” He went on to comment, “Working is enjoyable. I want young people to try doing all sorts of different things.”

The students sold their products at the Co-operative Union branches of Apple Town, Shuri and Kokuba from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on October 23. The ice cream sells for 250 yen with limited sales of a total of 700 units.
