Sure, 33 flavors sounds great, until you realize Baskin Robbins locations in South Korea are serving up Avengers-themed ice cream and — better still — Avengers cake.
According to The Korea Times, the promotional tie-in to Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron has been a boon for the company, with Avengers Ice Cream — in three flavors, with candy representing Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America — resulting in a 40-percent increase in sales over April 2014. (Before you ask, the flavors, which have nothing to do with the characters, are chocolate fudge, chocolate and milk chocolate.)
However, the ice cream cake is truly Earth’s (or at least Korea’s) mightiest, selling 70 percent more than any of the others. It’s easy to see why from these photos, which shows the cake, made of seven little cylinders of tasty goodness topped with emblems for the Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, the Incredible Hulk and Hawkeye.
The cake costs about $24, while the ice cream goes for about $2.60 a scoop. Baskin Robbins stores in the United States offered tie-ins to Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011, but they weren’t nearly this cool.
