Baskin Robbins Japan Brings Back Cherry-Blossom Ice Cream

Baskin Robbins Japan Brings Back Cherry-Blossom Ice Cream

After 24 years, Baskin Robbins is bringing back Sakura ice cream

Baskin Robbins Japan is re-releasing its limited-edition salted cherry blossom ice cream flavor after 24 years.

Japan gets all the cool limited-edition seasonal flavors, and cherry blossom or sakura is a particularly popular flavor during cherry blossom season in early spring, so it’s a little surprising that Baskin Robbins Japan has not offered its cherry blossom ice cream in nearly a quarter of a century, but that’s about to be rectified because the sakura ice cream is coming back next month.

According to Rocket News 24, Baskin Robbins Japan is re-releasing a cherry blossom flavor that was last released 24 years ago. It’s pink and pretty and reportedly contains actual cherry blossom leaves and a hint of salt to bring out the floral sweetness of the cherry blossoms.

The cherry blossom ice cream will be available at Baskin Robbins shops in Japan starting on March 1 and will be around through May. Unfortunately for those of us not currently in Japan or planning a trip this spring, the sakura ice cream is not expected to show up elsewhere, but check out some of our best cherry blossom recipes for some tasty ways to celebrate cherry blossom season wherever you are.


Starbucks Is Releasing Bright Pink Cherry Blossom Lattes For Valentine&rsquos Day In Japan

Starbucks never fails to bring us the best seasonal and limited-edition drinks. It practically invented the cult-following of PSL season and gives us everything from classic holiday drinks (shoutout Caramel Brulée lattes) to periodic, trendy creations like the Unicorn Frappuccino. The latest limited-edition blends Starbucks plans to thrust upon us are bright pink cherry blossom drinks that look almost too gorgeous to consume&ndashand you can only get ahold of them in Japan.

The Sakura Milk Pudding Frappuccino and Sakura Milk Latte will hype you up for spring. The Frapp will have a rich milk base with &ldquojelly-like pudding pieces&rdquo in it, according to Tokyo-based site Sora News 24. Cherry tree leaf extract and sakura strawberry sauce will give it its flavor and aroma. On top, there will be whipped cream and colored roasted rice pieces. The latte (that no, doesn&rsquot actually have coffee in it) will be made of sakura strawberry sauce and milk with the same toppings as the Frapp.

Oddly enough, the Frapp will only be available in a tall size from February 15 to 25. Maybe they don't have enough milk pudding on hand to make larger sizes? The latte will be available in all sizes from February 15 to March 12.

If you go for the frap, it looks like you might get a cherry blossom-themed to-go cup with your order, too. Starbucks is nothing if not committed to its themes. Word on the street is that Starbucks Japan also released a whole line of cherry blossom drinkware. Get all of the cherry blossom goodness while you can, or live vicariously through others!
