Summer is just around the corner, which means we can look forward to ice cream and mint chocolate treats. Mint chocolate is a summer highlight every year, with a refreshing taste that’s perfect for those sweltering days. So this collaboration between KitKat and Baskin Robbins in Japan, featuring both chocolate bars and ice cream, looks set to be a hit.
One of the highlights of the collab is the mint chocolate ice cream-flavoured KitKat bar. This new KitKat has cocoa cream sandwiched between wafers and is enveloped in a mint ice cream-flavoured chocolate.
According to Nestlé, the candy bar can also be enjoyed after it’s been stored in the freezer, which makes it crispier.
The mint chocolate KitKat will be sold in bags of ten for ¥540 at supermarkets and drugstores nationwide from Monday June 5. Additionally, you'll be able to buy single mini KitKat bars for ¥54 at convenience stores from Monday June 19.
While the new candy bar has us excited, that’s not the end of this collaboration. Baskin Robbins has also started offering limited-edition KitKat ice cream desserts on its menu.
There's the Happy Breaktime Made with KitKat (¥390) – a new ice cream flavour with dark and milk chocolate, plus crunchy KitKat pieces for added texture. You can also try the Collaboration Sundae Made with KitKat (¥550), which is a sundae topped with mini KitKat bars, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The last dessert is the Frozen Shake Chocolate Mint Made with KitKat (¥570), with a blend of mint chip ice cream and milk, finished off with the new KitKat flavour.
