Baskin Robbins Korea’s mint chocolate toothpaste


Mint chocolate has been dividing Korean netizens since 2019, with fans of the flavour saying that it’s refreshing and anti-fans saying that it’s like eating toothpaste. So it’s an unexpected move amidst the debate for Baskin Robbins to launch – of all things – mint chocolate toothpaste and toothbrush sets on their April’s limited-edition mint chocolate menu.

Fans of mint chocolate will be elated to know that they will soon be able to brush their teeth with their favourite flavour. But for anti-fans, this new launch is probably a nightmare come true.

Baskin Robbins Korea’s new merchandise is a collaboration with AEKYUNG’s 2080 dental care brand. The toothpaste and toothbrush set can be purchased for KRW900 (~USD0.80) when you buy a quart of ice cream, or any larger sizes, at a Baskins Robbins store in Korea.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on the new merchandise, pre-orders are currently open till 13th April at a discounted price of KRW400 (~USD0.36). Pre-ordered sets will be available for collection at Baskin Robbins stores in Korea from 14th April to 16th April.

The mint chocolate toothpaste & toothbrush set will be sold alongside Baskin Robbins Korea’s latest limitededition mint chocolate menu items. This new release does not have a global shipping option, but if you happen to have a friend in Korea, you can ask them to help you get it

Hopefully, Baskin Robbins’ global stores will also have a limitededition mint chocolate menu that comes with a promotion for mint chocolate toothpaste. In the meantime, you can try hyping up the flavour and get it trending in your country to convince Baskin Robbins to introduce the mint chocolate menu and merchandise in your area ASAP.

The Mincho BonBon is also available. It’s an “upgraded” version of mint chocolate ice cream, as chocolate truffles are used instead of your usual chocolate sprinkles, shavings, or chunks.

Tied with the launch of Mincho BonBon is also a short MV from VIXX’s Ravi, where he promotes the new ice cream with a catchy remix.  The MV went viral in South Korea, and now has more than 2 million views since its release on 31st March. Watch it below.

Mint chocolate is a hot topic of debate in South Korea, much like the debate over pineapples on pizza. Those who are against the flavour feel very strongly about it, and those who love the flavour will defend it with all their might.

GOT7’s Jay B is well-known for his love for mint chocolate, so it’s no surprise that he left a celebratory comment under HYPEBEAST KOREA’s post on Baskin Robbins Korea’s new mint chocolate toothpaste.

The most common argument against mint chocolate is that it tastes like toothpaste, so some anti-fans of the flavour are happy to see that their point has been proven, leaving comments such as “It’s proven that mincho tastes like toothpaste”.

And some don’t even have words to describe their disgust, simply leaving multiple vomiting emojis.
