Beat the heat with Pokemon ice cream (8/1 – 8/30/2019)
Right in time for the new Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution movie, Baskin Robbins (31 Ice Cream) is doing a collab with Pokemon to offer special ice cream and ice cream cakes! Make yourself (or your kid) happier by dropping in on one of their many locations in Japan.
Pikachu’s 10k Volts Ice Cream
Get a shock of flavor from the new Pikachu ice cream, available for a limited time. The yellow base is a sorbet with a mix of pineapple, peach, banana, apple, and orange flavors. The little red Pikachu cheeks in the ice cream are Pop Rocks that fizz in your mouth.
Here’s the official commercial that they’re broadcasting over Japanese TV.
Want more than one flavor? You can try more with their variety pack. Comes with Pikachu spoons.
Pikachu & Eevee Ice Cream Cakes
The first thing that caught my eye were these adorable cakes. Pikachu’s flavors are popping shower (mint + chocolate + pop rocks) and strawberry. The ears are made of chocolate, as are the big round eyes and adorable cheeks. On the other hand, Eevee’s more of a chocolate & caramel fella.
Other details as follows:
- 3,300 yen (incl. tax) (prices may be different depending on the store)
- 15cm diameter x 6cm in height
- Available from 8/1/2019
Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution
Why the Poke-collabs, you ask? Well, there has been quite a bit of Poke-hype these past few months, with the release of Detective Pikachu and now this new one, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution. This ice cream collab is basically promoting the movie, in theatres now. Here’s a trailer for the curious!
