7 Must-Try Flavors You Can Only Find At Baskin Robbins In Korea
While people generally try to avoid international franchises when they are abroad in order to try something they don’t get back home, some international franchises actually have things on the menu that you can’t find back home. One example is Baskin Robbins in Korea. The American ice-cream franchise has more than 8,000 stores in 50 countries worldwide – and many of them have unique flavors that aren’t sold elsewhere!

Here are 7 must-try flavors you can only find at Baskin Robbins in Korea.
1. PUSS IN BOOTS
While the Korean name literally translated to “My mom is an alien”, this delicious ice-cream combines three types of chocolate (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate) in one delicious scoop! This flavor has been on the menu at Baskin Robbins in Korea for a long time and is a safe staple.
2. CHOCOLATE FOREST
If you like matcha green tea and chocolate, this flavor is going to be one of your must-tries! Chocolate Forest was the winner of the 2014 ice-cream contest, which allowed people to create their own flavors and vote for their favorite. Chocolate Forest has been on the regular menu of Baskin Robbins in Korea ever since.
3. HONEY CHEESE TRAP
This flavor is absolutely delicious with almond brittle, mascarpone cheese and honey. If you prefer natural flavors over some of the more crazy varieties, you should definitely give Honey Cheese Trap a try.
4. TWINBERRY CHEESECAKE
Chunks of delicious cheesecake mixed into a blueberry-strawberry base makes this fruity flavor. Twinberry Cheesecake is the perfect balance of fruit and cheesecake, making the flavor not too rich.
5. ZZON TTEOK ICE CREAM
Ever since this flavor came out as a monthly special, it’s been my favorite and is now part of the regular menu at Baskin Robbins in Korea. This flavor is basically a mix of black sesame and injeolmi (traditional Korean rice cake), making it a truly Korean delight. On top of that, there’s bits of rice cake and pecans, too!
6. GOOD LUCK
Another flavor I highly recommend trying at Baskin Robbins in Korea is Good Luck. nougat lovers are going to love this ice-cream flavor! The nougat base comes with crunchy caramelized almonds and delicious syrup.
7. PAPA & DAUGHTER ICE CREAM
This colorful flavor is the counterpart to “My mom is an alien” and consists of two kinds of strawberry ice-cream and vanilla ice-cream. Crunchy pink chocolate balls make for an interesting taste adventure in your mouth!
