小倉アイスの由来

大正4年1915年ある夏の日曜日
みつばち創業者嶋田当与が氷あずきの種が
たのでもたいなく思いアイスクリムを
作る桶に貯蔵してみた
明朝桶の蓋を開けてみるなんと
周りが少し凍ていたので食べてみた
それは今まで食べたことのない味だ
少々甘いので砂糖を減らし種の中に入れて
廻してみた
十分が経ち二十分そして三十分が経たそ
の時蓋を開けてみた
そこにはキラキラしたものがあ
口に入れてみると大変美味しか
早速真向いの髪結いさんのところへ試食に
て行くとたちまちなくなてしま
品名を聞かれてもわからない
ている所へ裏の蔦堀井の旦那さんで
こくりうという人が現れた
僕が名付け親になてやろう
あずきの羊かんを小倉羊かんというから
小倉アイスが良かろうと言われ
小倉アイスと命名された
みつばち
The origin of 小倉アイス【the Japanese pronunciation is Ogura ice which means Azuki bean ice cream(red bean ice cream)】
In 1915,on a Sunday in the summer,the founder of みつばち [Mitsubachi],嶋田当与[SHIMADA Toyo]thought that wasting leftover Azuki beans was not agood idea
so she stored them in a wooden bucket for making ice cream.
The next morning she opened the lid to find a frozen coating on the beans and decided to eat them.
She had never tasted anything like it.
But they were too sweet so she desugared the beans,put them back in the bucket and then mixed them with some ice cream.
After 10minutes,20minutes and 30minutes passed,She opened the lid again to find a glistening mixture.
She tasted it and found that it was surprisingly delicious.
Wanting others to sample the mixture she brought the Azuki bean ice cream over to the hair dressing salon which was directly opposite her shop and it was happily eaten at once.
However when asked what it was called she didn't know.
Kokuryo,who was the master of Tutahorii which was behind her shop helped to name the Azuki bean ice cream.
He said that Azuki bean 羊羹[Yokan]which was a thick jellied dessert made of red bean paste,agar,and sugar,was called 小倉羊羹[Ogura Yokan],so it is a good idea to call
the Azuki bean ice cream"小倉アイス[Ogura ice]".
Then the Azuki ice cream was named as 小倉アイス[Ogura ice].
