The world’s largest ice cream chain Baskin Robbins is bringing an old traditional flavor back to Japan’s BR after 24 years. We are not sure why it took so long, but people are happy that they can order the sakura (cherry blossom) ice cream again. It is described as tasting of sakuramochi (sakura-falvored rice cake), with real cherry leaves as an ingredient. The subtle flavor of salt delightfully balances the sweetness of the ice cream.

The long awaited sakura flavor ice cream will be available at Japan’s BR from March 1st to the end of May for around 360yen (US$3.20) for a regular scoop of serving.

If you live nearby a BR in Japan, don’t miss the chance of having a scoop of BR’s sakura ice cream. A guarantee of good taste to start off your spring mood in Japan.
