National Ice Cream Day: Baskin Robbins Gets New Flavors
Because all good things must come to an end, Baskin Robbins is kicking some of its famous flavors to the curb: Caramel Praline Cheesecake, Campfire S’Mores, Apple Pie a la Mode, Superfudge Truffle, and French Vanilla. But the good news is: out with the old means in with the new.
On this year’s National Ice Cream Day, Baskin Robbins will introduce the world to the new replacement flavors. But as we wait, let us pay our final respects:
■French Vanilla (1945), one of the first flavors launched by Irv Robbins and Burt Baskin, a classic rich vanilla ice cream made with egg yolks.
■Caramel Praline Cheesecake (1970), vanilla cheesecake ice cream swirled with a caramel ribbon and pralined pecans.
■Campfire S’mores (1975), milk chocolate ice cream with a marshmallow ribbon and crunchy graham cracker bits.
■Apple Pie a La Mode (1976), vanilla ice cream with real apple, crunchy pie crust and a caramel cinnamon crème ribbon.
■Superfudge Truffle (2007), decadent chocolate fudge ice cream with chunks of chocolate ganache and toffee truffle pieces.
These flavors are still available, but only until supplies run out. So, what flavor do you want to see added to the Baskin Robbins empire?
