Doll’s Festival Themed Snoopy Ice Cream Arrives at Baskin-Robbins in Japan
20.February.2019 | FOOD
To celebrate this year’s Hinamatsuri―also known as the Doll’s Festival and Girls’ Festival―Japan’s branches of Baskin-Robbins are holding a themed event from February 15 up until the day of the national festival, March 3.
Snoopy Doll Display: ¥1,740 (Tax Included) *Price may vary at certain branches
The Snoopy Hinadan Kazari doll display ice cream was a huge hit with ice cream lovers last year so it returns again this year even cuter. During Hinamatsuri people set up displays of ornamental dolls and this ice cream box recreates that, incorporating traditional Japanese motifs in its design. Snoopy and Belle, made from sugar, take the form of the Emperor and Empress respectively, with Woodstock representing the three court ladies.
The box comes with an eye-catching pink and yellow design that’s sure to make whoever you share it with happy.
Also, on March 3, the day of Hinamatsuri, each branch of Baskin-Robbins will be decorated entirely pink. Customers who go to the shop dressed in pink will receive a free scoop of ice cream.
Make Hinamatsuri even more fun this year by celebrating it with Snoopy and Belle.
