Fourth Annual October is Spookey Month: Baskin-Robbins' Halloween flavors hit Japan again!
I grew up eating "ice milk," which is the pre-1980s name for what we now call low-fat ice cream. That's why any trip to my hometown's Baskin-Robbins was a major treat. Fatty ice cream is more delicious than any other kind.
Hamamatsu has at least 4 Baskin-Robbins stores, or, as they're known here in Japan, just "Thirty-One." One not far from my old apartment in Sanaru-dai, one each in the two major malls in the suburbs and a central location right downtown in Zaza City, where it is now officially Halloween.
I can't read very many Japanese characters, so I'm not sure what those flavors are, but they're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky. They're all together ooky. An ice cream Halloween!
