Fans of frozen desserts of all ages adore Baskin-Robbins, the legendary ice cream shop with its 31 flavors and boundless inventiveness. Just the sound of its name brings to mind vivid displays filled to overflowing with mouthwatering ice cream options, each one a distinct and tantalizing experience. We’d like to take you on a delicious tour of the company’s delightful world in this article, where we’ll reveal the most amazing and sought-after ice cream flavors that line their freezers. Every scoop offers a captivating and creamy adventure, ranging from time-tested classic favorites to inventive creations that push the boundaries of flavor.
I wanted to start this list with a bang, and you cannot get much better than Strawberry Cheesecake. Cheesecake connoisseurs, this Baskin Robbins pick is for you. Silky-smooth cheesecake-flavored ice cream accompanies cheesecake chunks and a spiral of strawberry. This treat is perfect topped with whipped cream and hot fudge or on its own. I suggest trying it with a waffle cone – the crunchy cone mixed with the soft cheesecake bites is incredible. The Strawberry Cheesecake flavor is not dairy or egg-free, so keep that in mind if you have food allergies or follow a vegan diet.
Mint Chocolate Chip
Fresh, exhilarating, and smooth Mint Chocolate Chip is one of my favorite flavors. While some may (incorrectly) think it tastes like toothpaste, most people love this Baskin Robbins classic flavor for its light taste and dark chocolate surprises. Enjoy simple mint-flavored ice cream with chocolate chips throughout for a slight crunch. Also, this ice cream flavor is gluten-free! While Mint Chocolate Chip contains dairy and soy, it does not come from any ingredients with gluten. Ideal on a sweltering summer day or as an after-dinner treat, Mint Chocolate Chip has been one of the most popular flavors at Baskin Robbins since day one.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
There are two things everyone has lied about at least once. First is stating that you have read all the terms and conditions. Second? Saying you have not ever consumed raw cookie dough. Thankfully, Baskin Robbins provides a tasty solution – Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream! Creamy vanilla ice cream pairs beautifully with cookie dough chunks and chocolate chips. This flavor has no artificial dyes or growth hormones. You can enjoy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in a thick Baskin Robbins milkshake, classic cone, or even in a sundae with dreamy caramel and hot fudge. This recipe is not dairy or gluten-free.
Gold Medal Ribbon
Since 1945, Baskin Robbins has created 1400+ flavors for consumers across the United States. One of their house-made flavors is Gold Medal Ribbon, which launched in 1979. This tasty treat swirls chocolate and vanilla ice creams and a ribbon of smooth caramel for an award-winning scoop. Baskin Robbins suggests ordering yours in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone, but you can also try it in unique desserts like a Polar Pizza or ice cream cake. Gold Medal Ribbon is simple but effective and goes well with almost any topping imaginable. I love it with chocolate chips and whipped cream.
Jamoca Almond Fudge
Coffee lovers, you can now enjoy your favorite drink any time of day. Another original flavor from Baskin Robbins, Jamoca Almond Fudge, is a crunchy, nutty, and rich ice cream blended with robust espresso. That said, this recipe contains nuts, so anyone with nut allergies should keep their distance – or try the classic Jamoca coffee-flavored ice cream. Jamoca Almond Fudge is one of the most renowned Baskin Robbins flavors for its range of textures and creamy coffee taste. Plus, you get a blast of caffeine for an afternoon boost. I always order this flavor with a chocolate-dipped cone to pair with the crunchy almonds. Yum!
You cannot get much more classic than vanilla. Baskin Robbins makes their creamy concoction with fresh, genuine cream and natural vanilla bean flavor. Do not let anyone fool you – this flavor is not dull! Jazz it up with toppings like cherries or gummy bears, or make it a sundae with hot fudge and chopped walnuts. Smooth and satisfying on its own or mixed with other flavors, this traditional dairy treat should not go ignored. I love the Baskin Robbins vanilla ice cream in milkshakes especially – it makes the shake super creamy and not-sickly-sweet. Perfect for any time of the year.
Are you feeling fruity? Try Cherries Jubilee from Baskin Robbins! Cherry fans adore the rich cherry-flavored ice cream and sweet cherry chunks. Also of note is the kick of rum, giving the flavor a decadent after taste. Make it even more indulgent with chocolate sprinkles or chips and a chocolate-dipped waffle cone. I admittedly do not eat cherries, so this flavor is not for me – but my family members love it in a sundae or on its own. The cherry halves add depth and texture, while the smooth ice cream balances the cherry and rum flavors. Cherries Jubilee is wheat-free.
No need to go to the fair with this Baskin Robbins flavor! Enjoy sweet, light Cotton Candy flavoring and dainty pastel colors with every spoonful. Cotton Candy has no artificial dyes and is wheat-free. This ice cream brings nostalgia regardless of age. Ideal paired with a classic cone or spruced up in a Polar Pizza, this carnival ride of a flavor will instantly soothe your sweet tooth. I love this flavor for its aesthetic – the pink and purple colors make it almost as good to look at as it is to eat! I prefer this flavor without toppings, as it is so flavorful by itself.
Okay, hear us out. Chocolate ice cream is shockingly hit or miss depending on where you go, and it just so happens that Baskin Robbins has some of the finest chocolate on the planet. They churn their chocolate ice cream with rich cocoa, heavy cream, and even chocolate liquor for an extra kick. This ice cream is pure heaven. While it is mind-blowing by itself, I prefer to add strawberries or raspberries for a hint of fruity sweetness. Other options are a chocoholic-friendly sundae and milkshake. This ice cream flavor contains milk, so it is not one of the dairy-free flavors at Baskin Robbins. The good news is it is gluten-conscious.
Cookies N’ Cream
Delicious, classic Oreo cookies paired with vanilla ice cream? Sign me up! This Baskin Robbins traditional flavor takes the glass out of dipping milk’s favorite cookie. Chunks of Oreo cookie (icing included – because we all know that is the best part) blend with creamy vanilla ice cream for a chocolate-heavy flavor and dreamy texture. I love a scoop of Cookies N’ Cream in a cup with whipped cream – no fudge necessary. It also makes an excellent ice cream cake during the summer months! Unfortunately, this flavor is not gluten-free or dairy-free, but it is nut-free for any nut allergies.
If you are in a tropical mood, the Nutty Coconut flavor from Baskin Robbins will suit you well. Delicate, lightweight coconut ice cream layered with walnuts, pecans, and almonds make this flavor sweet and salty. I am not a coconut fan, so this flavor is a no-go. However, most people love this concoction for its robust nut taste and crunch. Although this flavor is not nut-free, it is gluten-conscious – so ice cream lovers with gluten sensitivity can enjoy a cold scoop. Top it off with chocolate sauce and a cherry, and you have a pristine nutty treat.
Old Fashioned Butter Pecan
Some things are simply timeless, and one of the best examples of that is the Old Fashioned Butter Pecan ice cream from Baskin Robbins. A true Southern classic, this savory-yet-sweet selection remains one of their top-sellers and has fans of all ages. This cold treat takes the butter pecan flavor to another level, with butter pecans scattered throughout and nutty butter pecan ice cream. The browned butter taste is one of a kind and truly special, and the fresh pecans add a delightful layer of crunch. No toppings are necessary here! However, note that this flavor is not gluten, dairy, or nut-free.
Peanut Butter ‘N Chocolate
I consider peanut butter one of my only vices, so this ice cream flavor is borderline sinful. The Peanut Butter ‘N Chocolate from Baskin Robbins is like enjoying your favorite candy bar in frozen dairy form. Decadent dark chocolate ice cream melts with chunky peanut butter ribbons and swirls for an ultra-indulgent taste. Even though this has plenty of flavor on its own, I love adding a bit more crunch with chocolate chips or sprinkles. Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven, so it is no wonder that this is one of the most beloved flavors at Baskin Robbins. Also, this delectable treat is gluten-free!
Just thinking about this flavor takes me back to after-school ice cream trips. Go back to the days of yore with the Pink Bubblegum ice cream from Baskin Robbins! It is one of their most unique flavors and one of the most popular. I have never found a comparable bubblegum ice cream. The bubblegum-flavored ice cream and chewy bubble gum pieces take sweetness to another dimension. I love the mix of textures and the adorable pink color. Plus, you do not need to add any toppings or sauces. This mouthwatering flavor is perfect all on its lonesome.
There are a select few people out there without a sweet tooth, and if you are one of those people, this flavor is for you. Salty, only slightly sweet, and with a delicate crunch, the Pistachio Almond ice cream from Baskin Robbins is one of the classier options on this list. Something about the rich pistachio makes it feel like a high-end dessert. The charmingly green pistachio-infused ice cream mixed with thinly sliced almonds gives you a unique flavor with every bite. This flavor is ideal for those without a sweet tooth because you get the creaminess of ice cream without the sugary taste.
Pralines ‘N Cream
While it feels slightly criminal to say this as a Southerner, I am not a fan of pralines. However, the Pralines ‘N Cream flavor at Baskin Robbins is a different story. Crunchy, sticky, and caramel-flavored pecans blended with creamy vanilla ice cream make for a lovely Southern scoop. I think this flavor is like classic butter pecan, but slightly stepped up. It tastes like a top-notch bakery dessert on a cone! The caramel ribbon adds another layer to the deliciousness and works well with the crunchy nuts. And gluten-free folks will be glad to know that Pralines ‘N Cream is gluten-conscious – so dig in.
You will be hard-pressed to find a prettier ice cream than the Rainbow Sherbet from Baskin Robbins. Yellow, pink, and cream-colored stripes show through every scoop, bringing loads of fruity flavor with them.This sherbet has pineapple, raspberry, and orange-flavored sherbets blended for the quintessential summer combo. Every time I take a bite, I feel like I am on a mini-vacation. If you are not a fan of the sour taste, combat the tart flavors with a dollop of whipped cream – although I eat it as-is. Either way, this tangy-sweet flavor will satisfy your sweet tooth with bold-but-lightweight flavors.
