This month’s globally curated Dairy Ice Cream Innovations list includes something for everyone! While many brands focus on bringing back limited edition flavors for fall, others are coming up with something entirely new!
One such example – taking the claim as this month’s Flavor of the Month – is the Super Mario and Baskin-Robbins Release Power-Up Ice Cream Collection in Japan. The assortment of goods and menu items contains several special ice cream treats, including an ice cream float, sundae, and specialty ice cream cake – all with a unique nod to the recently released Super Mario Bros. Wonder game!
Read more about this exciting launch and many others worldwide by reading the article below.
Super Mario and Baskin-Robbins Release Power-Up Ice Cream, Japan
In anticipation of the October release of the new Super Mario Bros. Wonder game for Nintendo Switch (Nintendo’s newest installment in the Super Mario game franchise), Nintendo and Baskin-Robbins have joined forces to create a fun collection of limited-time ice cream treats:
Super Mushroom Cola Float (390 yen/$2.66USD) contains cola sorbet combined with Baskin-Robbins’ white crackling candy and vanilla ice cream to create an “energetic cola float flavor”
Super Mario Double Cup features three designs: Red, Yellow, and Green. Choose two of your favorite ice creams to fill the cups, which will be distributed randomly, and the first 310,000 people around Japan who purchase a cup will receive either a Super Mushroom or 1 Up Mushroom cookie as a special topping. Small scoop cups are priced at 490 yen ($3.37USD), while regular scoop cups are priced at 710 yen ($4.88USD).
Super Star Sundae (750 yen) has Mario leaping from a mound of whipped cream with a Super Star and Brick Block chocolate on either side as he punches a “Hatena Block” (“Question Mark Block”) on top of a small-sized scoop of your favorite ice cream flavor
Super Mario Palette 6 (3,700 yen/$25.43USD): This specialty six-slice ice cream cake comes packaged in a limited special Question Mark box. The cake slices contain the following flavors:
Cookies and vanilla ice cream with chocolate ice cream on a chocolate sponge
Strawberry cheesecake ice cream with strawberry ice cream on a white sponge
Popping shower ice cream on a white sponge
Caramel ribbon ice cream on a chocolate sponge
Chocolate ice cream with chocolate flakes and white chocolate on a chocolate sponge
Love Potion 31 ice cream on a white sponge
But hurry! All of the new treats at Baskin-Robbins stores – called “31” stores in Japan instead of “Baskin-Robbins” – will be available until October 2, except the cake, which has a limited quantity.
