Baskin-Robbins is officially saying goodbye to those winter blues and springing forward with new, unexpected flavor combinations that will have you deliciously dreaming about—and celebrating—the carefree days of spring and summer a little early.
A dreamy collision of creamy and refreshing mango ice cream swirled with a light and tangy mango sorbet, March's Flavor of the Month, Triple Mango, is a taste of bliss that's sure to transport you to an island paradise, even if there's still a chill in the March air. But that's just the delicious beginning: Each scoop is infused with real mango pieces and finished with a mango ribbon to add just the right amount of sweetness to perfectly complement the fruity ice cream and sorbet base. For anyone who has to taste it to believe it, there will be free, one-ounce samples at your local Baskin-Robbins on National Sampling Day this Sunday, March 1 from 3- 7 p.m.
"We've been dreaming about spring and the island life all winter, and wanted to bring a taste of it to everyone with a burst of true mango flavor," said Nikki McKinnell, R&D technologist, Baskin-Robbins U.S. and Canada. "We tried a lot of mangoes from around the world to get this flavor just right, and after many taste tests, included three varieties of premium Alphonso, Kent and Totapuri mangoes as the flavor combination truly transported us to out-of-office mode."
Those customers planning ahead can have their cakes customized and ready to go by ordering online or through the Baskin-Robbins mobile app.
To wrap up the month and officially celebrate the end of winter, guests are invited to visit their local Baskin-Robbins location and Celebrate 31. On Tuesday, March 31, guests can get a scoop of their favorite ice cream at participating Baskin-Robbins locations nationwide and enjoy a regular or kids-sized scoop for $1.70 and 2 pre-packed quarts for $8.99.
