The Story Behind Baskin-Robbins’ Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Flavor

The Story Behind Baskin-Robbins’ Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Flavor

It’s National Chocolate Chip Day, and at Baskin-Robbins®, we find a reason to celebrate every holiday, big or small. There’s no better way to observe this holiday than by enjoying our classic Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Here’s the inside scoop on one of our original 31 flavors!

Chocolate Chip Scoop

Our Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is a Baskin-Robbins staple and features creamy, smooth Vanilla flavored Ice Cream made with rich Semi-Sweet Chocolate. But do you ever wonder how we ensure this simple, yet delicious flavor combination has chocolate in every bite?

Just like our Mint Chocolate Chip flavor, our Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe includes liquid chip instead of traditional chocolate chips or flakes. We add the liquid chip in a melted state, and it hardens as it’s mixed into the ice cream to create that delicious, mouthwatering chocolate flavor. This process results in a better flavor balance of chocolate throughout the scoop and ensures you are left with an indulgent chocolate taste from the first pink spoonful to the last.

Perfect in a freshly baked, Chocolate-Dipped Waffle Cone, a Chocolate Chip Milkshake, Chocolate Chip Polar Pizza® Ice Cream Treat, or as a layer in one of our signature Ice Cream Cakes, this classic flavor is a delicious, sweet treat. You can also enjoy our Chocolate Chip Ice Cream in a Pre-Packed Quart right at home with delivery via DoorDash, Uber Eats or Postmates.
