Häagen-Dazs Japan has announced they’re coming out with two kinds of vegetable-flavored ice cream in May. (Yep, you read that right.) According to the company, “Tomato Cherry” combines the sweetness of tomato with the fruity flavor of cherry, while “Carrot Orange” mixes carrots with the taste and scent of fresh citrus. Häagen-Dazs says the new flavors contain about 8.5 percent milk fat, roughly half of what its other flavors do.

At the Malaysian Open Friday, pro golfer Pablo Larrazabal leapt into a 14th-hole water hazard as he was being attacked by hornets in an effort to escape further injury. “They were huge and like 30 or 40 of them started to attack me big time,” he said. “My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake. I ran to the lake, threw my scorecard down, took off my shoes and jumped in the water. It was the scariest moment of my career, for sure.” Larrazabal received medical treatment for multiple stings. But when he put his shirt back on, the hornets returned, so he borrowed a colleague’s polo and wound up birdying the hole.
