Holiday flavors are back at Baskin-Robbins and we love what we're seeing.
Let's talk first about December's Flavor of the Month: Peppermint Bark in the Dark. According to Brand Eating, this ice cream flavor features chocolate ice cream with a chocolate-flavored peppermint ribbon, peppermint candy pieces and peppermint bark. Chocolate and peppermint are almost as festive as eggnog, so this is the perfect flavor for winter.
According to Baskin-Robbins, you can order the ice cream by the scoop in a cup or cone, but you can also get more creative with your order by getting the flavor in a Warm Brownie Sundae, Warm Cookie Sundae, or as a milkshake or cappuccino flavor!
The next two items on the menu are a Ganache Poinsettia Cake and Peppermint & Winter Oreo Cookies Polar Pizza. The cake is decorated with an icing poinsettia and Winter Oreo cookie crumbles. Check it out; it's almost too pretty to eat!
Winter Oreos are popular with Baskin-Robbins this year. We have a second seasonal dessert that features them. The Winter Oreo Cookies Polar Pizza starts with a double-fudge brownie crust, and is topped with peppermint ice cream, Winter Oreo pieces, and chocolate and marshmallow fudge toppings.
The Ganache Poinsettia Cake and Peppermint & Winter Oreo Cookies Polar Pizza are brand new additions to the Baskin-Robbins seasonal menu. This is their debut! “We’re excited to introduce [these] two new additions to our holiday lineup this year …,” said Jeff Miller, executive chef and vice president of product innovation for Dunkin’ Brands. “The holiday season is all about creating special moments with family and friends, and we’re happy to provide guests with ice cream treats that celebrate classic seasonal flavors, like peppermint, that they can enjoy during this festive time of the year.”
If peppermint is not your thing, but you want to be festive too, try the Winter White Chocolate or Egg Nog ice cream flavors instead. Baskin-Robbins is also sponsoring a "Celebrate 31" promotion on Dec. 31 -- all regular and kids' ice cream scoops will be $1.31, any flavor!
