CANTON, Mass. (January 31, 2012) – Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, is making Valentine’s Day even sweeter this February with the introduction of two new flavors to its popular line of Ice Cream Cake Bites, the brand’s delicious culinary creation that combines both ice cream and cake into a single, bite-sized serving. The new flavors, available for a limited time only through the end of February, are Love Potion #31® and Chocolate Dipped Strawberry.
Baskin-Robbins’ Ice Cream Cake Bites feature ice cream with an indulgent ganache-style covering and are finished with a decorative drizzle of chocolate, caramel, raspberry or strawberry. The first new Ice Cream Cake Bite includes Love Potion #31 ice cream resting over rich chocolate cake, covered in a chocolate-flavored coating and finished with a raspberry-flavored chocolate drizzle. The Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Ice Cream Cake Bite is made with Very Berry Strawberry ice cream over chocolate cake, covered in a chocolate-flavored coating and finished with a strawberry glaze drizzle and mini chocolate hearts.
The two new Ice Cream Cake Bites flavors will be featured in Baskin-Robbins’ Valentine’s Day “Box of Chocolates,” a mix-n-match four-pack retail box combined with two of Baskin-Robbins’ classic, decadent Ice Cream Cake Bite flavors, including:
- Chocolate Mint: Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream over chocolate cake with a chocolate-flavored coating, finished with a green drizzle
- Double Chocolate: Chocolate ice cream over chocolate cake with a chocolate-flavored coating, finished with a fudge rosette and chocolate accent
The addition of Love Potion #31 and Chocolate Dipped Strawberry marks the first time Baskin-Robbins has introduced new Ice Cream Cake Bites flavors since they first launched in October 2011.
