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!
