Doraemon Arrives at Baskin Robbins with new ice cream flavor and traditional Japanese sweet

The Japanese kids animation Doraemon is a childhood favorite of many, even outside of his home country.

The classic character has been around for a whopping 50 years, and to mark this milestone in 2020, some sweet celebrations are coming to Baskin Robbins in Japan. It’s not just one limited-time-only Doraemon treat, but a whole array of awesome offerings that will appeal to any fan.

As long as they like ice cream, obviously.

His recognizable red, white, blue and yellow color scheme has been recreated in ice cream form for a flavor that perfectly represents the beloved robotic cat. The blue ice cream is a refreshing soda flavor and the white part is yoghurt flavor. A strawberry sauce makes up the red streaks and golden chunks of popping candy will remind fans of Doraemon’s bell.

There will also be adorable limited time only cups on offer decorated with cute Doraemon illustrations, and you can choose any two ice cream scoops to fill them with.

The Doraemon themed lineup of sweet stuff has a more traditional treat as well. A type of Japanese sweet which is famously Doraemon’s favorite, Dorayaki. The two pancakes are usually sandwiching a sweet red bean paste filling, but for this special Baskin Robbins version it’s filled with the ice cream of your choice and the outside is imprinted with the character’s feline features.

And for super fans who want to go all out in their own Doraemon celebrations, there’s a whole ice cream cake on offer too.

Kids and nostalgic adults alike can pick up these celebratory treats from Baskin Robbins stores across Japan until 5th April 2020. If you can't get enough of Doraemon themed traditional sweets, check out these adorable character wagashi which are also being sold for his 50th anniversary.

Why, oh why didn't Baskin Robbins simply serve hot dorayaki with (vanilla) ice cream? It's AMAZING.
