Wild Amazon flavor was actually one of Baskin Robbin Japan’s “legendary” flavors that first made its appearance back in 2002. This glorious concoction is made up of green avocado coconut ice cream, orange Amazon fruit ice cream, and red and white ribbons of tropical fruits and rich coconut. It even contains caramelized cashew nuts for that much-appreciated crunch, and will be available from August 5th to the end of October.
